The second years where tasked with unleashing their inner botanist, in this plant centric project. Jane Hislop began the project by bringing in a selection of interesting specimens for students to examine and draw. They then studied the plants through drawing upon drawing.
The second element of the brief was to produce a print. Our studio assistant, with the help of the print technicians, was able over a few weeks to induct the full second year in Screen printing. They took to it like ducks to water and even on the first time were producing interesting and experimentive work and came out of it as competent print makers. We’re looking forward to seeing what they utilise the medium for in the future.
For the final piece they were free to experiment and come up with some unique and resourceful outcomes as you can see.
