Year 8 Textiles Workshop Day

Thirty students were selected to take part in a workshop day on 17th June as they have shown great progress this year.

Thirty students were selected to take part in a Year 8 workshop day on 17th June as they have shown great progress in Textiles Technology this year.  They were all given a Fairtrade t- shirt and asked to remodel it into a another garment. They had all sorts of ideas from dresses to waistcoats! They created their designs and I was very impressed with the quality of their designs. In the afternoon we used the techniques of the artist Jennifer Collier to create a newspaper example of a piece of child’s clothing using wax and found objects.
