The great outdoors. A place that is not very likely to be a top choice for most teenagers early on a Sunday morning. However, after a little nap on the coach for some, the boarders & boarding team arrived at Kingswood Activity Centre, Ashford bright and early for a fun day of boarding activities.
RIC’s very own Textile Design guru, Francesca Baur, has developed a series of seasonal wall hangings exploring the landscape of Kent for the Kent Cloth Project. As we become increasingly disconnected from the making process through the speed of modern textile production, this project advocates a slower approach to creating natural local textiles with a story that embraces local heritage and landscape. From employing traditional skills and growing the flax for linen, to making natural plant dyes.
Don’t forget we have the last of our ’35 Years of Visual Arts at RIC’ exhibitions at Sun Pier House, Chatham from 1-14 July 2019.
This is the BIG one – with work on display from not only our current students studying Fine Art, Graphic Design, Textiles and Photography but a host of ex Art & Design students who have gone on to do wonderfully creative things as well as work from our staff past and present.
If you would like to come along to the Private View on Thursday 4 July, 18.00 – 20.00 you can book a ticket via our Eventbrite page.
Our touring art exhibition has now opened at it’s next venue – the Horsebridge Arts Centre in Whitstable. The private view on Thursday was well attended despite the wet weather. Congratulations go to all the students with work on show. It’s a great opportunity for them to see their work in a gallery setting and to receive feedback from new audiences beyond their teachers and fellow students. The Exhibition continues until 21 May.
