Restorative Textiles Workshop @MGGS
Year 11 Textiles students were this week visited by Textile Practitioner Kate Foley. Kate led our students through a workshop to explore how creative practices in Textile design can support our well-being. Students thought about how textile techniques and processes, in conjunction with sustainability practices such as reuse and upcycling can provoke mindfulness and they used a mixture of materials to create badges that represented their identity and current state of mind. At the beginning of a busy year for these students, this was the perfect opportunity for them to reflect and refocus.
