The start of the academic year saw the ten new First Year students take a drawing trip to the Water of Leith. It was a chilly day, so drawing eventually turned to collecting of objects to save students’ fingers from turning an unhealthy shade of blue.
Over the following three weeks, the students combined those objects as well as experiences and impressions from the drawing trip into hand-drawn designs in the studio, and then went on to learn how to turn these into repeating patterns by cutting and moving parts around.
The finished patterns can now be admired at the Water of Leith Visitor Centre (open daily between 10am and 4pm). Go and have a look, it’s well worth a visit!
