As your son/daughter has chosen to do Textiles as an exam subject, the Art department would like to offer them the opportunity to go on a trip for the day to the largest and most highly regarded textiles and craft event in the UK. There will be galleries showing work by some leading textile artists and a Fashion Show to watch displaying some amazing garments. Universities across the country will be showcasing some interesting work produced by the students. We think this trip will be a valuable opportunity to collect research for their coursework projects started this term. For further information go onto www.theknittingandstitchingshow.com
We will be leaving by coach from the school promptly at 9.00 a.m. on Thursday 8th October and returning at 7.00 p.m. to the school. As the return journey is after the school day the students will be required to be picked up by parents or guardians from the front of the school at 7.00 p.m. As traffic out of London can be unpredictable the students will be encouraged to ring home to reassure you of our arrival time as we get nearer to School.
The cost of the trip will be £6 for entry into the show for those under 18 and £9 for those over 18.
The cost for the coach travel and insurance for the day will need to be covered in the price of the trip.
If they choose to do a workshop this will be something they could book individually (A level students).
Total for those under 18 is £ 24.00 each
Total for those over 18 is £ 27.00 each
