A Level Textiles students at the Grange School, Hartford have been working on a project inspired by Folk Art and traditional Canal Boat Art, attempting to modernise the traditional Roses and Castles technique used in decoration of canal boats. Each individual outcome is different from the next using methods such as screen printing and applique while experimenting with colours and shapes. We hope you enjoy the work the students have worked hard to create.
