We had the privilege to welcome to our school, Nikki Parmenter a Textiles artist who specialises in mixed media, textile based pieces and who takes her inspiration from the oceans’ environmental issues. Selected Year 8 and 9 Textile pupils learnt how to make a 3D pieces by using pipe cleaners, wadding, wool, hand/machine embroidery and different textured fabrics to create a marine life animal using heat manipulation.
‘I really enjoyed using different materials and textures to create a unique piece of art’. Roxanne Suchon Yr 8
The resulting pupils’ works were exciting and demonstrated not only their abilities but how inspirational Nikki was.
