Year 7 Student Contacts American Designer

Last year Year 7 Textiles students designed and made mini-monster soft toys and, as part of their Independent Study. They researched a designer who specialises in making cotton monsters, Jennifer Strunge. Part of the research included finding out about the fabrics Jennifer uses as well as how she incorporates re-cycling. Lucy (7D2) decided to email Jennifer and ask her the questions. Jennifer replied very promptly, answering the questions in detail and seems delighted to hear that our students are studying her work. She has asked to see Lucy’s completed monster toy so a photo will soon be winging its way to her at her home in Baltimore. Well done Lucy on such an original approach to your Independent Study!
