On the 19th November the year 10 Textiles students were visited by the lovely Textiles artist Jenny Bullen. Jenny showed the students a beautiful collection of her hand stitched Textiles work and then the students completed a workshop making use of beautiful fabrics and threads that Jenny and her friend Margaret donated to the Textiles department. The students worked with layering organza in their chosen motif to go with their natural form project and then worked into with hand embroidery stitches to produce a layered piece inspired by Jenny’s work.
On behalf of the Textiles students and the Design department, we thank Jenny for her time and are very appreciative of the fantastic donation of fabrics, threads, yarns and materials.
