This week I went down to London to carry out a one day jewellery workshop for the Textile department at West Hatch High School in Chigwell. I worked with a group of Year 9 students on an organised activity to help them practise skills including, team-building, organisation and problem solving. The students were shown examples of textile jewellery, and then designed their own pieces. The pieces had to be made from materials in the department. The students’ work can be seen on the project work page.
