Year 9 workshop with Priscilla Jones

On Monday 16th January the Art Department invited the brilliant and successful textile artist Priscilla Jones to do a full day 3d wire and textile workshop for a group of Year 9 pupils. It was a busy and productive day where the girls worked creatively with new media making a collection of delicate sculptures using silk, paper covered wire and wax, guided by Priscilla.

Priscilla has been producing contemporary stitched mixed media pieces in 2D and 3D since completing her degree in Embroidery at Manchester Metropolitan University in 1997. She draws her inspiration from a variety of sources exploring the concept of identity, memory and nostalgia. She is continuously exhibiting across the UK and her fashion/interior fabrics and wallpaper is exported to Europe, Australia and the USA.

The girls thoroughly enjoyed the day: ‘It was great to spend the whole day making and using new materials’ , ‘It’s been great fun
