Textiles Trip to Bournemouth

Published 13 November 2023

On Thursday 19 October, Year 10 Textiles students spent the day visiting the Oceanarium in Bournemouth. Students observed, sketched and took photographs of marine animals and plants to use as inspiration for their current GCSE coursework, based on Coast. Here is what some students had to say about the trip:

“My favourite part of the trip was when we got to go into the individual tunnels. It allowed us to get close and personal with the fish as well as see the coral and sea anemone in close detail.” Zoe

“My favourite bit of the Textiles trip to the Oceanarium in Bournemouth was the bubbles that you could poke your head into, as they made it a very immersive experience letting you feel as if you are in the tank with the fish and let you see the detail of their scales up close. I also enjoyed walking along the beach and being able to experience the textures of the beach for inspiration for my final project” Rafi
