ARTY Rastrick pupils will today see their textile work go on show.
Textile artist Helen Dalton has helped pupils of Carr Green Primary School to develop their artistic skills.
The year five and six pupils got practical experience to research, design and create textile products. Items made include purses, wallets, handbags, mobile phone cases, pencil cases, jewellery and key rings, which will be exhibited for a month at the Bankfield Museum from today.
Textile designer Helen Dalton said: “It has been a real privilege to work with the students at Carr Green who have been eager to learn new creative ways of working and are producing some wonderful textile products.”
Teachers, school staff and parents were also given the opportunity to learn weaving and textile techniques.
Teacher Scott Parkin said: “The project has been a resounding success.
“The process of designing, sourcing, funding and collaboratively managing the project is such a rich and relevant experience for the children.
“The children always want to speak about what they have been doing or going to do and are very committed to the success of the enterprise element.”
The project has been organised through CapeUK and the Creative Partnerships programme in West and South Yorkshire.
