Highfields School art textiles students took a trip to The Knitting & Stitching Show in Harrogate International Centre last week.  

Students were very inspired by the work on show by a range of artistsand practitioners, and could see what is possible beyond the classroom.

Highfields head of art, Kerry Fairbank, said: “Enabling our students to see what’s possible in art and textiles at craft shows like this is very rewarding.

“ Our students really benefitted from speaking to art college graduates.

“It was a fantastic opportunity for them to see for themselves how you can be creative and make a living from art and textiles.”
