On this page I will be exploring the ideas I have for the challenge as well as a range of problems around the contextual challenge and considering what I need to researchI chose this problem because I think it is a problem that may not be considered when making the town centre more attractive. I also think that the project that I have chosen is one that can include many different medias and fabrics to create an interesting productOn this page, I have collected and summarised the problems and investigations I will do to achieve a successful product. I have thought about what I could make, the problems that may occur - so that I have an alternative solution- and the questions I may ask my client. It is important to interact with my client so that I am well prepared and address all my clients needs, likes and dislikes so that the product I make is useful and loved by my client
