Textiles ExtravaganzaOur week started with a visit to the Dartmoor Zoo to help with ideas for our creations. We looked at the textures and designs on the animal skins, drawing in our sketchbooks and taking photographs. Back in the textile studio the group used their drawings and photographs to help design cushion covers and bags. Students were also able to bring in their own t-shirts and pillowcases to tie dye.
On Friday afternoon parents, friends and teachers came in to see all the beautiful things that had been made during the week. They were very impressed and delighted to see what had been made. I also enjoyed the week, it was a real pleasure to work with students who showed so much joy and commitment to their creative experience. Many thanks also need to go to Miss Roberts and Mr Whitfield who helped to make this week a success.
