  • 1. Creative and Media: Level 2 Higher Diploma Unit 3: Artefact Level 2 Higher Diploma Creative and MediaUnit 1: Scene 3.1.1 Go back in time! Student Book pp 78–81 On page 81 of the Student Book you will find some information about the Industrial Revolution – a time that saw big changes in the way products were made and how people lived. Today you are going to consider what the processes of producing artefacts may have been like before machines were invented. Your teacher will give you an everyday household object. Look at it carefully and answer the questions below. VASE What materials do you think - Ceramics this object is made from? - Clay - Glass Do you think this object I think it was created by hand. was created by hand or by a machine? Now imagine you are designing an object to do the same job that this item does (e.g. scissors = to cut paper) but without machinery to help you make it. What materials would you make Clay or a glass-blower your object out of? Would it look different from the Yes object you have in front of you? Would it operate differently? No How would you make this object I would do the clay making by hand how I have without using machines? done previously. © Pearson Education Ltd 2008.

  • 2. Unit 1: Scene Creative and Media: Level 2 Higher Diploma Unit 1: Scene 3.1.1a Today’s artefacts Student Book pp 78–81 Can you think of anything that you own or have seen around you that might have been made by hand? Diploma Level 2  Information Technology Make a list below of things which we have in our homes or use in everyday life that are made by hand.  food________________________________________________________________  Some clothes_________________________________________________________   Do you prefer things that are made by hand or things that are made using machines? I prefer things that are made using machines simply because more or less everything in my everyday life is made by machines or is some sort of technology. I think also another reason is because most things made by machines have more use to me and can be found anywhere. For example, the uses are usually quicker like a phone to call someone to tell them something rather than do something like send a letter.______________________ 2 © Pearson Education Ltd 2008.

  • 4. Unit 1: Scene Creative and Media: Level 2 Higher Diploma Unit 1: Scene 3.2.1 Generating ideas Student Book pp 82–85 Once you have been set the brief for the kind of artefacts you are to produce, you need to start thinking about how you might meet that brief. Diploma Level 2  Information Technology Recording your thoughts in this process is very important. Begin by making a mind map below of all of your ideas for ways to solve the problems that the brief brings with it. Make a stage prop Make a model Make a clay pot. town. Make a dolls. house. Do a painting Make a costume. Selecting your idea Weighing up the strengths and weaknesses of each of your ideas is an important part of beginning to select what you may eventually produce. For each of the ideas from your mind map, complete the evaluation chart below. When considering an idea, think about the following and decide if they are strengths or weaknesses:  whether the materials you may need are available and affordable  whether you have access to the equipment you may need to produce this artefact  whether you have the skills to create this artefact (or if you would need to ask someone with those skills to help you). Idea Strengths Weaknesses Making a costume - Allows creativeness - very difficult - Easy access to materials - time consuming - not the right materials Making a clay pot - We have the equipment - not reliable - Challenging - Very creative Making a painting - We have the equipment - Not very creative/challenging - It can be done quickly - Too simple - Hasn’t got the wow factor 4 © Pearson Education Ltd 2008.

  • 6. Unit 1: Scene Creative and Media: Level 2 Higher Diploma Unit 1: Scene 3.2.1a Managing your time Student Book pp 82–85 You will need to be careful to plan how you will use your time effectively. Taking the best or strongest idea you have identified from the first activity, start to make Diploma Level 2  Information Technology notes about how much time you would need to complete the production of your artefact. Write in the activities you would need to carry out and give an estimate of how long this might take you to complete below. Task Time it would take - Gather all of your materials and make a base This shall take roughly: 10-15mins - Start to make the coils to build up the clay pot. This might take roughly (depending on the size): 30-50mins Smooth the coils to make a smooth pot. This might take roughly: 5-10mins Add on any accessories E.G: handles. This might take roughly (depending on what you add on): 10-15mins Before you put it in the kiln, leave it to dry. This might take roughly: 10days Put it in the kiln and see the final piece (if it doesn’t explode) 6 © Pearson Education Ltd 2008. Copying permitted for purchasing institution only.

  • 7. Creative and Media: Level 2 Higher Diploma Unit 3: Artefact Level 2 Higher Diploma Creative and MediaUnit 1: Scene 3.2.1b Problem-solving Student Book pp 82–85 If you are to produce a successful artefact it is essential that you are prepared to be flexible in the production of your work. You should begin to think about possible problems you may encounter whilst working and consider how you would solve these problems whilst working. List some possible problems and their solutions in the table below. There is guidance on doing this on page 84 of the Student Book. Potential problem How this could be solved The Computer Crashes I’ll back-up all of my work on a USB/Disk or use another alternative. Lose Folder Have another copy of all my work saved on a computer or USB. Not finish work on time Put in extra time to complete it at break, lunch and after school. With the clay, it would explode in the kiln if all the So I will make two versions of my clay pot so that I bubbles aren’t kneaded out have a back up. Not enough time to plan the creation I would pre-plan it at home or in my own time. Haven’t got the right materials to make it E.G: Tell my teacher what I need for the building the cardboard for the building. lesson before I start creating or get them myself. I don’t get the chance to collect my design - Create my own or do it during lesson or at break, lunch or after school. © Pearson Education Ltd 2008. Copying permitted for purchasing institution only.

Unit 1: Scene Creative and Media: Level 2 Higher Diploma Unit 1: Scene 3.3.1 Creating an artefact Student Book pp 86–105 When creating an artefact, you will be using materials and processes with which you may not be familiar. One of the most important things about working in a professional environment is to make Diploma Level 2  Information Technology sure that you are aware of, and abide by, the health and safety considerations of that environment. Once you have chosen the idea you are going to proceed with and planned how you are going to work, you will be preparing actually to produce your artefact. Fill in the following form to make sure you have thought through carefully how you will be safe whilst you do this. The artefact I am producing is: a clay pot____________________________________ I will be using the following materials in the production of my artefact: clay, water, clay cutter, tissue paper, glue, magazines/newspapers, and fine liner pens.______________ I will be using the following machinery or equipment in the production of my artefact: Kiln__________________________________________________________________ Will you be working in a special room or environment to do this?

Unit 1: Scene Creative and Media: Level 2 Higher Diploma Unit 1: Scene 3.3.1b Health and safety 2 Student Book pp 86–105 Think about any rules that you think should be put in place whenever anyone is working in an environment where there are potentially dangerous substances or equipment. Diploma Level 2  Information Technology Make a list of five golden rules that you think should be followed when working in any professional creative environment. 1. Always use equipment responsibly. 2. Be aware of your surroundings or those around you. 3. Respect each other in the workplace. 4. _____________________________________________________ 5. _____________________________________________________ With a partner, try to come up with a way of promoting these rules to other people who work in the creative and media industries to help them keep safe at work. Write your ideas below: In order to make sure that everyone in the workplace is aware of the rules, we could hang posters all around the environment, informing employers and employees of what the rules are. Also, during staff meetings, there could be various reminders of the rules and regulations so that everybody knows what they are and how to full fill them._________ 10 © Pearson Education Ltd 2008.
