Students Test Their Metal
4 March 2019
Year 12 students got the chance to work with professional craftspeople during a trip to Plymouth College Of Art.
The group was taught about the processes involved with manipulating and embossing metal and were able to design, cut and press designs into brass pieces, which they had manipulated through an annealing and pearling process.
"It was great to see the students extending their learning outside of the classroom and getting to work with materials and techniques used within the professional world of Art, Craft and Design," said Mr Stephens, the College's Raising Standards Leader for Art, Craft and Design.
"The students enjoyed the experience and were proud of their outcomes."
The workshop is part of a series of workshops the College Art Department has organised to aid the development of students' creative capital.
Through working with professionals and visiting creative establishments, students are developing their creative understanding and the role it has in their future.
