Year 7 Faculty Showcase: Creative Wash Bags

In Term 3 our year 7 Textiles students made wash bags.  Earlier in the year they had designed a block print on the 2D Design CAD programme.  Their block prints were cut on the laser printer and the students used them to decorate their wash bags.  Using a choice of fabric colour for their washbag, and a variety of fabric paints for their block print designs, they produced a wide range of fantastic products – well done!

Year 7 Faculty Showcase: Textiles

Our Year 7 Textiles students had fun making sunglasses cases in Terms 1 and 2.  This gave them an introduction to using the sewing machines, working with felt, and creating their own designs.  For the rest of the academic year they will be making cushion covers, using the Art Deco design movement as inspiration for their designs.  They will work with a variety of decorative techniques and have an opportunity to design their own print block on our 2D design package.  Look out for further photos of their work!

 

 

Year 8 stitched landscapes

Year 8 students travelled to the Lake District in October 2017 for a week long residential trip. Since then, they have been producing some beautiful work in Art based on their experiences and the surroundings they explored. 8LG4 have created these wonderful stitched landscapes as a response to the stunning views they encountered.
