Students Welcome Diane Bates

 

Today the art department welcomed textile artist Diane Bates to host a day’s workshop with the sixth form students.  The art students worked alongside Diane to learn her unique decorative techniques involving metallic threads, invisible fabric and wire stitched together to create elaborate and detailed laced pieces.

Students were thrilled to be given the opportunity to work on their own designs under the guidance of such an established and  talented artist who is renowned for her intricate, 3-dimensional embroidery and costume creations.
