05 Jan William Morris Gallery Visit
On Wednesday 13th of December 2017 the Art Department took 20 Year 9 students to visit the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow. The gallery is a fantastic space to get closer to the life and works of this highly inspirational man and our students enjoyed this hands on experience of being in the actual mansion he used to reside in, with lots of opportunities to interact with materials, videos and objects. As part of the visit students were taught by a professional artist about printing processes and were given the opportunity to create their own unique prints. The experience has certainly enhanced their study of Morris’ designs in the classroom and will now inspire them to create their own repetitive designs in January.
