Sophie - Year 13 - Graphic Design Artist Book and Zine “A live brief from a poet led me to produce a set of illustrations based around the concept of psychogeography, exploring the effects geographical location can have on emotion and behaviour. I used a variety of techniques including photography, ink drawing, painting and felting which I then manipulated on photoshop to create the final piece. I particularly enjoyed the process of turning my illustrations into an artist’s book using what I had at home during lockdown, playing with different layouts, materials and binding techniques. When it came to deciding what my final project was going to be, I knew I wanted to produce an account of my response to the pandemic, some sort of documentation of the ways in which our lives have had to change and the things that have become normalised during this period to look back on in years to come. I began researching a type of artist’s book known as a ‘zine’, an independent or self-published booklet created mainly for sharing ideas and creativity rather than for advertisement and making profit. I liked how the zine could be accessible to everyone and enabled me to bring together the skills I had learnt throughout the course into a final product. Some of the topics covered in my zine include the challenges of working from home, the stream of consciousness, the pulling down of Edward Colston’s statue and lockdown bad habits.” #TGSTogether #DigitalExhibition #30DaysOf #ArtAndDesign #Showcase #Achievement #Talent #YoungArtists #YoungDesigners #Thetford #Norfolk #Suffolk

On Monday the 24th of May, the Sixth Form completed a run in their games lesson to raise money for the @norfolkandwaveneymind charity. As a Sixth Form we take pride in our charity events and mental health support as we feel this is important for not only our local community but also the wider Norfolk community hence our decision to run for this charity . Our original target was 50km as a group all working together to reach this goal but with 18 of us taking part, mostly completing 5km each, we managed to complete a grand total of 82km far exceeding our original goal. We’re all proud of each other for completing this as a team and any donations to support our efforts in honour of the Norfolk and Waveney Mind Charity would be much appreciated.

Sunny - Year 12 - Textiles Dress and Mood Boards “This is the style of Cyberpunk, the electric future. People may wear snug clothes with sparkling material. I was inspired by the costumes in the film ‘The Fifth Element’, which were designed by Jean-Paul Gautier” Screen Print Zodiac “I created a print on the theme of astrology and tarot cards. In Medieval times astrology and divination were popular so I put the sun, moon, stars and pentacles on the screen print, and was inspired by etchings and celestial maps” #TGSTogether #DigitalExhibition #30DaysOf #ArtAndDesign #Showcase #Achievement #Talent #YoungArtists #YoungDesigners #Thetford #Norfolk #Suffolk
