Bandana making

Students from Truro College Art & Design Saturday Club were set a 3 week project creating bandana’s that followed a garden inspired theme.
Week 1 – natural dyes and shibori techniques
Transforming plain cotton into vibrant, patterned fabric. Vegetables/matter that would normally be discarded in the compost heap were recycled ;  such as Red onions skins, cabbage and tea bags.
Week 2 – Leaf printing
Using leafs collected from students own gardens patterns were printed onto their pre dyed fabrics .
Week 3- Embroidered bugs
Small bugs and insects designed by students were brought to life as they experimented with machine and hand embroidery.

And here are the final results!

Anthony Frost and Bob Devereux visit the Saturday Art Club


A few Saturdays ago Truro College Saturday Art Club had the pleasure of hosting visiting artists Anthony Frost and Bob Devereux for a masterclass. Along with members of the Falmouth Saturday Art Club the children spent the day creating wonderful abstract impressionist paintings with the help of the two artists. During the masterclass we were also visited by Sir John and Lady Frances Sorrel, the founders of NADSC. They spent the morning visiting and chatting with the young club members. The results of their work can be seen above and the students really enjoyed their day.
