Year 9 Textiles Trip!


Year 9 Textiles Trip!


On Tuesday 7th June, our Year 9 students visited One Garden and Brighton University's end of year exhibition.  They will become our Year 10 Textile class next year.  They had an exciting time learning how to record from nature using a range of media, and capture their environment from different perspectives.   They also explored how textile design translates in a higher education setting, observing the facilities the course has to offer and what they can expect to create by the end of their 3rd year.

"We took our own photos of the plants which helped me to get all the details when drawing them.  I enjoyed looking round the University."  Nola

"I really enjoyed the trip, it was different preparation for Year 10 and I learned so much!  I even did some weaving on a loom and looked at all the flowers in the One Garden."  Ralph

"The gardens were breathtaking!  It gave me a good insight into what I might want to do in the future."  Lila-Grace
