A group of Year 11 students got to work with designer Jennifer Sturrock during the trip.

Jennifer is a designer, educator and writer within the realms of research, public engagement and creative facilitation.

Alison Rhodes, director of art at King’s Ely, said: “This was a valuable opportunity to work with a successful designer.

“Jennifer said she felt our students were highly skilled, enthusiastic designers and that they were not afraid to take risks with the garments they produced.

“They worked in a professional manner throughout the day and their outcomes were extremely inventive, showing both strength and determination.”

The workshop activity involved students carrying out research in the exhibition, followed by a masterclass where they produced sculptural garment designs exploring new methods of construction.

Students also visited a temporary exhibition about Frida Kahlo, which tells the story of the Mexican artist’s life through more than 200 of her personal artefacts and clothing.
