It seems lockdown brings out the creative juices!
This week some of our senior Technology students came onsite in a very controlled environment to work on projects that were tricky to complete at home. Above are students in our Year 13 Fabric Technology workshop, and below are Year 13 Food Technology students hard at work.
“Year 13 Food Technology students attended a 6-hour workshop on Wednesday to carry out practical trials and testing associated with their new product development,” says TIC Food Technology, Lizzie Beaumont. “Their experience from previous years and knowledge of processes, allowed them to confidently carry out individual work and make considerable practical progress during the day. Due to social distancing they were spread over several rooms.”
“Year 13 Fabric Technology students completed a full day workshop,” says TIC Fabric Technology, Kate Luisetti. Students worked on individual projects including using the sublimation printer as part of a climate change protest costume, designing a screen print for a protest costume, construction of costumes reflecting students’ cultures (Filipino, Chinese and Korean), garments inspired by the 1940s and a costume made from waste paper/card to demonstrate awareness of sustainability.”
We also wanted to share these images of Year 12 Fabric Technology student Izzie Newton-Cross modelling her self-made gorgeous red velvet trousers and beautiful matching red brocade mask.
