Hannah had a wonderful times on her exchange in Japan.

She’d been so looking forward to the visit and had she not left the UK before lockdown it may not have been able to happen so easily.

However once their restrictions were imposed in the host country Hannah abided by the law and enjoyed her immediate surroundings

This didn’t stop her, once restrictions were eased, enjoying the culture, food and hospitality shown to her by her host nation.

Hannah has returned full of enthusiasm for the country and the kindness shown to her whilst there.

A small exhibition of work produced there is on show in Bath( details in the poster)

The Tyger

These Times – How We Maintained Focus 2020
Alice says……
I have always had a love for tigers
My dad always used to read me ‘The Tiger that came to tea’ when i was tiny. I fell in love with the story and illustrations, and thought maybe one day a tiger would visit me for tea!

My project- ‘The Tyger’ features inspiration from the William Blake poem called ‘The Tyger’ as well as Kew Gardens & London Zoo.
 I enjoy reading the Poem ,’Tyger’ by Blake, in particular, due to the narrative it leads throughout and its constant rhyming couplets.
Inspired by my love for storytelling, animals and nature, I decided to develop this idea by creating a children’s wear collection based on Tigers, Giraffes, Hippos and Monkeys which may also be used for a visual merchandising display.
Creating characters is something new to me and I have been loving it! it is so exciting seeing these animals come to life in my prints and large scale paintings. I love working with texture/block colour and seeing the two compliment each other!
I think it is important with what is happening in the world right now, to stay positive & remember that animals belong in this world just as much as we do.
