Y10 Art-Textile Workshop with Helen Biles
On Friday, the artist Helen Biles led a rust printing art-textiles workshop for our year 10 art students. Helen is the organiser for Purbeck Arts Week, and we maintain our strong community link by organising artist workshops and creating work for the Purbeck Young Artist awards every year.
The year 10s loved the workshop, and the atmosphere was really positive throughout the day. The outcomes produced were very creative and gave the students a chance to experiment with new techniques. Work produced was inspired by the current projects on natural forms; bones (vanitas), or plants. The abstracted textile pieces are a lovely addition to their sketchbooks!
