Previous Masterclasses

Brand & Print Masterclass - UCA Rochester - Years 9-13

Branding is a key factor in everyday life. Without realising it we often identify products by the logo or print design rather than the object itself! This workshop explored the use of branding in the world of textiles and fashion. Students designed and produced their own brand logo, creating bold graphic prints which were later applied to a t-shirt using hand-cut vinyl and heat presses. During the workshop students explored their identity and how to portray themselves as a brand, before their final pieces were entered into our Alternative Selfie competition.

Experimental Photography Masterclass - UCA Canterbury - Years 9-13

There are many ways of creating photographs, not all of which include using a camera! During this workshop students experimented with cyanotypes and other camera-less photography methods before creating a zine to display their work. Students were encouraged to think outside the box and their final pieces were entered into our Alternative Selfie competition.
