On Thursday 23rd January three 3rd Year BA Textiles students led two, two hour workshops with students from local schools in Bournemouth.  The workshops were based on the Craft Council Exhibition in the AUB Gallery – Block Party: Contemporary Craft inspired by the Art of the Tailor, the students took inspiration from the block party exhibition using pattern pieces created from there own bodies.  The Textile brief the students then developed was to create a second skin by translating these into printed textiles inspired by the inner workings of the body and using heat reactive dyes and the heat press.
