Students visit the Knitting and Stitching Show

Students from Year 10 and Lower Sixth visited the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace last week where they viewed 18 different exhibitions from individual artists, graduates, universities and guilds.  They were also able to learn about traditional techniques as well more modern materials and processes. It was a very innovative and inspiring day for all and it has motivated students to develop their own exciting textiles work in school – they all want to go again!

“The Knitting and Stitching show was a really good experience and it was very inspiring and eye-opening. I really enjoyed talking to the people running the stands and watching demonstrations on how their products were made. I would definitely recommend this trip and would go again!” Anna Hedges, Year 10

“The trip to Alexandra Palace was a very good chance for us all to see some extraordinary things and it really inspired me and have me a better idea of what kind of styles I like. I would definitely go again!”  Sara Miteva, Year 10
