Textile Extravaganza

Enrichment Week – Textile Extravaganza

We started the week with a trip to Saltram House to gather ideas for designs. Students were particularly inspired by the magnificent plasterwork ceilings, the Chinese rooms and the flora of the formal gardens. Back in the studio we designed and made batik cushions and beautiful tie dyed bags. Students also were able to work on large sculptural shapes that will be put on display in the College. To finish the week students held an exhibition for family, friends and College staff to showcase all the work they had made during the week. It was a most enjoyable week for all of us!
