“It’s helped us express ourselves through fashion and art. It helped me understand more about my community and roots.”
Tyreis Holder and Fine Art GCSE students from Year 10 at Addey & Stanhope school worked together to create a collaborative garment.
The students were allocated a section of a pattern piece to decorate using the theme of community/ joy as stimulus and writing as a prompt. This was then sewn together by the artist to create a complete garment-which was later photographed. This project challenges isolation using collaboration in a time where we are forced to be separated. Upliftment happens through community.
The final work will be on display, as well as photographed and printed on posters to placed around Deptford and outside Addey and Stanhope School.
“I found it enlightening and made me think more about who I am as a person.”
