HEIA(Q) was asked to display work from Year 11 and Year 12 Textiles students at the recent Brisbane Stitches and Craft Show held from 17 to 21 March 2016. HEIA(Q) of course jumped at the opportunity when it was offered in December, and then quickly had to put the display together quickly—several schools were approached to give us student work for the display at short notice.
The display garnered a lot of positive interest from the people who attended the display. Comments included ‘Wow, so good, really year 11 and 12 students did this?’ and ‘Nice to see that we are still teaching textiles’.
A big thanks to the schools that supplied work, and also to Delia Stecher, (HEIA[Q]) who coordinated the display. If you want to be involved next year, please let us know as we will be hoping to get wider representation from across Queensland next year.
Kay York, HEIA(Q)
