Year 9 Workshop
On Thursday 18th January we welcomed Abi Nicol from Create Gloucestershire and Tom Henderson from South Gloucestershire and Stroud College to deliver a full day of workshops to Year 9.
The day began with an inspirational assembly delivered by Justin Gregory from The Hereford School of Art about the role of creativity in the modern world and the importance and growth of creative careers. This was followed by our students participating in a series of one hour workshops across the day led by Abi Nicol and Tom Henderson with the brief, ‘to build a city’. All our students contributed towards a collaborative city using a variety of resources to create buildings ranging from; football stadiums, ski slopes, spas and supermarkets along with restaurants and a pub! Infrastructure was added with roads, bridges and a train track. The city was incredibly creative and gave students the opportunity to explore scale, 3D construction as well as the chance to work intuitively and without constraints.
