Each year Week 7 of Term 1 sees a break from the usual studio routine for our Year 2 Students. We organise a series of lecturers and practical workshops by visiting speakers who give Masterclasses in a diverse range of creative activities that we think our students will enjoy, and find useful in the briefs that are set to follow. This year we ran masterclasses on Copywriting, Image Making through stamp printing, and Photography. The workshops ran all day, everyday throughout the week and introduced the students to some new skills and techniques, as well as extending their established skills in Photography. Bookbinding workshops are set to follow in Term 2.
Our visiting speakers were:
Laura Hunter: Copywriter from Futerra.
Tamar MacLellan: Textile Artist, Illustrator.
Andy Weekes: Freelance photographer.
Image Making: Stamp Printing with Tamar MacLellan.
Photography Masterclass: Lighting, Portraits, and Beauty Shots with Andy Weekes
