Eden Project Trip

Our entire first year Level 3 art and design Diploma students enjoyed a working visit to the Eden Project. This provided them with a fantastic opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich, exciting and diverse environments that Eden offers. It was a beautifully atmospheric day, full of autumnal colour set against a backdrop of grey stillness. During the day they produced a body of work that will be extended and developed for their Environment project upon their return to college. The students produced drawings and designs and took many photographs that examined the diversity of Eden’s collection of plants and artworks displayed within the varied environments and climates.
