Alison, a member of the Brunel Broderers group who recently exhibited in the Curious Drawers exhibition in the Curve, worked with different groups of pupils on various textiles activities.

Holes were drilled into the top and sides of a wooden chest of drawers.  Fabric strips cut into ribbons and wools were then hand stitched into the piece of furniture. This was a very experimental, large scale piece showing the structural potential of hand stitches.

Yr 13 textiles

Year 13 Textiles students Alice Capener, Bethan Collingham, Laura Clark, Victoria George and Sarah Sahebgharani were able to interview Alison Harper to help them develop their Personal Investigation essays for A-level.  They were given a tour of the Curious Drawers exhibition and introduced to the background information behind the pieces on display. The students were also able to participate in a workshop making twisted and wrapped threads.
