The Learning team are very proud to link our wallpaper collection to an all school competition held at St Vincent’s Primary School in Rochdale. Groups from all years visited the Whitworth last week to have a Q&A session with our wallpaper expert, Christine Woods. The aim of the day was to gather research and knowledge whilst inspiring and influencing their upcoming design ideas for the competition itself. We have been invited to help judge the winners back at school and we look forward to displaying their work in our Gallery cafe come the end of May. Be sure to come down, grab a latte and soak up the wonderfully abstract outcomes of wallpaper that have been designed through the eyes and creativity of our future wallpaper designers! We’ll look to post photos of their school celebration here on the blog very soon. Big thanks to Christine, St Vincent’s teacher and project leader, Maureen Carnighan and Gabby Warren-Smith who has been assisting the Learning team on many projects since October. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll see a former pupil of St Vincent’s Primary have their very own wallpaper exhibition held in our new galleries that go up in 2014!
