Visit to Knitting & Stitching Show – Friday 7th October 2022

20th September 2022

Dear Parents/Carers

Knitting & Stitching Show – Friday 7th October 2022

The Textiles Department is keen for all students to reach their full potential and therefore we would like to highlight a great opportunity available to year 10 GCSE Textile Design students.

We are organising a study visit to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace in London on Friday 7th October 2022.  We shall be travelling there and back by coach. On the day of the visit the students will need to be at school in time so that the coach can leave at 8.00 am. We will be aiming to arrive back at Biddenham at approximately 5.00pm (traffic permitting).

The cost of this trip will be £28.00 and includes coach travel and show tickets.

Students may wear their own clothing and will need to bring a notebook/sketchbook, drawing materials and a packed lunch.  The activity is an extension to work the students are doing in school and is a valuable element of their course. Students will be able to watch Textile artists at work, visit the Textiles Galleries, the graduate showcase and attend project demonstrations by Textiles artists. They will be required to produce a written and visual report of their day, which will form part of their coursework.

Places on this trip are limited and are on a first come first served basis and  will go live on Wednesday 21st September 2022 at 8am.  Payment and Parental Consent will be made via your ParentPay account.

Thank you for supporting your child in this way.

Yours sincerely
