Textiles Workshop

Valley Park Art scholars in years 9 and 10 attended a textiles workshop today... 

Students were assigned to create a dress in the medium of recycled materials which would count towards their GCSEs and an art exhibition in April. The scholars used a range of materials from bin liners and paper plates to nappies and bubble rap. Everybody in the workshop produced extravagant concepts.

“This workshop has allowed me to practice and experiment with new techniques and materials” said year 10 art scholar, Josephine Biggs. "I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and left with a lot of interesting and helpful knowledge as well as tips on using materials and fabrics."
