Textiles and Drama combined together for a fabulous costume design workshop this term from the talented Fiona Chivers. This came as part of our partnership with Hall for Cornwall in Truro. It was an excellent opportunity for students to see some live work, along with understanding all the different aspects of developing ideas for a costume design.
Students had the opportunity to then create some super quick mood boards with crazy designs on them. These were really fun and experimental.
