St Mary's pupils help Bradon Forest Textiles students

Year 10 students studying GCSE Textiles were able to see the children’s dresses they had created modelled in real life when pupils from St Mary’s primary school visited today. The Bradon Forest students had to make a dress from an old pillow case using embellishments and other techniques to create unique designs.

Student Tamara Lee said ‘It was lovely to meet the St Mary's pupils and to hear what they had to say about our designs.  I loved that they liked my work and I will use their feedback to improve my work in future.'

Teacher of Textiles, Mrs Bone, said, ‘It’s been very rewarding for the students to able to develop their skills on this project. They were pleased with the dresses they created and enjoyed receiving feedback from the St Mary’s pupils about the unique features of the dresses they were wearing. Seeing someone wearing a dress adds so much to the design experience and will help them think about wearability for their future designs’.

The dresses are a project which the students have been working on as practice for their final GCSE pieces, which will be submitted and assessed before being awarded a grade.
