Stapleford Pupils Learn About Textiles and Screen Printing
Between November 2019 and February 2020, Stapleford Community Primary School have been delighted to have the opportunity to work with a professional textile and screen print artist, Ricki Outis.
With the support and help of Lesley Morgan, Arts Development Manager, Anglian Learning, and Polly Bodmer from the Fine Arts Society South Cambs, Ricki was able to deliver a fantastic project that involved every pupil in the school.
The focus of the artwork was the environment, and each class was given a theme such as the oceans, trees or flowers. Ricki demonstrated the process, then helped the children with their ideas and drawings, before they printed. The gasps of amazement and awe were magical, and the children were so inspired.
The finished designs are now hanging proudly in the school hall. We are really grateful to Ricki, Lesley and Polly for making this possible.
