OUR Year 10 Textiles students could be found exploring Cambridge on September 24th, collecting resource material for their current project work.

Students visited the Museum of Zoology, Cambridge University Botanic Garden and Cambridge Art Makers.

Director of Art at King’s Ely, Alison Rhodes, said: “The students focused on colour, shape, form and methods of application, and connected this research with the work of other artists and designers.

“There was also the opportunity to work with the talented textile designer, Gill Collinson, where students produced a series of textile sample ideas ready to use within their project work. This experience proved to be an invaluable opportunity to explore and develop analytical skills to support their sketchbook ideas.

“It was wonderful for them to collect such a wealth of resources alongside working with a professional designer.”
