Isn't the internet a wonderful thing! Came across this artist whilst doing some research for Year 13. Really interesting work made from human hair. Weird but also very beautiful. She also does some intricate lace patterns based on tree's shadows.
Hope you're all having a great start to the term and the creative juices are flowing

I am always more than happy to read over written work before you present it in your book/folders. Just email it my way.

Whatever you have been up to over the summer use it as a source of inspiration. Even if you feel it doesn't quite fit into your project- it will! Use photographs you have taken or newspapers or magazines you have read- work over the top of leaflets you have picked up or diary entries you have made.
Whatever it is make sure you have something to show for your summer. As always get in touch if you're stuck
Look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks,

Hope you're enjoying yourselves, chilling, enjoying some sun and doing a teeney bit of work (it'll pay dividends next year).
I wont be there on Thursday for results (I'm currently sunning myself in Tuscany), but I should know them by the time you do. Email me with any queries, concerns or panics and I will reply pronto. Remember you knew nothing about Textiles when you started in September and your second unit was loads better than the first, so whatever the outcome we can build on it.
Will be thinking of you.

The outcomes were phenomenal and despite them being the youngest members for the school we felt it necessary to share some of the outcomes in order to inspire older years.
They worked superbly throughout the whole day and appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves...as did the staff- thank you to all involved, particularly Miss Cove and Mr Matthews for taking the photographs.
I'll leave you to peruse a few of the finished pieces whilst also wishing everyone a happy holiday!

Mrs Tomic, Mr Chubb, Mrs Austin and myself took 45 year 9 Art and Graphic Design student's on an inspirational drawing, rubbing and surface collecting excursion along the wind swept beach.
Our first stop was the amazing fishing boats and huts, where we encountered some crazy seagulls, fisherman and fish, rope and nets. Perfect for finding and creating textures. We even had some brave paddlers in the sea!
We then walked down the lanes and took the funicular railway upto the top of the cliff for lunch, relaxing and admiring the spectacular view.
It was then time for some ice cream and fun on the fairground rides!
A fantastic day all round. Be sure to use your research to help you with your summer I.S!
Miss Cove :)

After mooching around the exhibition we were treated to a presentation from Sheila Ayton- an unsung fashion hero and Wallis designer for 40 years. Her interesting talk on her love hate relationship with couture made me wish I grew up 30 years earlier.
Here are some images of some of the work. Get yourself there. £5 for you lot.
