Our Year 8 students were given the opportunity to work with the Crafts Council of England, Leeds University and Leeds Art University of a collaborative textile project.
Over four days students hand knitted a large scale canopy, created textile samples using domestic knitting machines and large scale banners using computer aided design. This resulted in some of the students attending a private view at Leeds Art University to celebrate all their hard work.
As their Art teacher I couldn't have been more proud of how our Year 8s worked and supported each other over the four days. The excitement from the students was tangible and definitely one of the highlights of my year!
