Fashion and textiles students from King’s Ely are brimming with new ideas following a visit to London’s Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum.
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.

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.
