Students work with Textile Artist

Dec '08
Internationally recognised textile artist Jennifer Collier has spent two days at Burton College working with design students.

Based in Stafford, Jennifer creates innovative textiles, craft pieces and art work using natural, found and recycled materials such as teabags, leaves and fruit. During the art workshop, the students, who are all following either the National Diploma in Design or Foundation Degree in Creative Arts For Employment courses, were challenged to create art works from these materials, culminating in an exhibition of work.

Talking about the workshop, Lecturer Emma Strange said, “Jennifer uses a variety of more experimental techniques such as weaving, waxing, knitting, embedding and fusing to create original pieces of art from unconventional materials."

"The workshop was really valuable for the students, allowing them the opportunity to have first hand contact with a successful designer, understand her thought processes and learn a series of techniques to turn recycled materials into something beautiful. It was certainly challenging but the students were excited by the tasks and felt encouraged to be very creative.”

Burton College runs a variety of courses for those interested in pursuing a career in ceramics, art & design, fashion and textiles.
