Here are some fabulous examples of Miss Taylor’s Year 9 fashion designs based on the work of Alexander McQueen and inspired by their own studies of reptiles and butterflies. They created their designs using repeat patterns and on their first design used fine line pen and water, the creativity and attention to details are stunning. They are currently working on their second design using collage and papercut. Fantastic work!!!

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: β€˜It was great to spend the whole day making and using new materials’ , β€˜It’s been great fun’
