A group of year nine Art Textiles students have been studying the work of the mixed media artist Jennifer Collier. They were given an exciting opportunity to attend a workshop with Jennifer where the pupils were taught a variety of experimental textile techniques.
Pupils attended the workshop all day and, during the morning session were taught different textile techniques which were then collated into a hand made sketch book.
Then, during the afternoon session, pupils created paper garments from the techniques taught in the morning.
All decorative items produced will be used for their GCSE project and provide exemplar material to supplement their research on Jennifer Collier.
