Students’ exhibits in Priory Meadow

Students from 1066 Country will be exhibiting graphics and textiles work in Priory Meadow Shopping Centre tomorrow (Saturday).

Designs by students on the AS-level Graphic Design and AS-level Textile courses will be on show and available, raising funds for charity.

Rye Studio School specialises in creative enterprise and project-based learning.

Student Mikaela Overton said: “This is a great opportunity to gain experience in promoting our work.

“I’ve enjoyed designing and making Christmas based products, and I’m looking forward to seeing the public’s response.”

Students from Rye Studio School are also singing Christmas carols in Priory Meadow next Thursday (December 18), during late-night shopping from 5pm to 8pm.

The young people from Hastings, Rye and Rother will perform a collection of carols and songs, accompanied by students playing keyboard and acoustic guitars.

Sue Warren, learning coach, said: “This is a great opportunity for the students to showcase their talents, and they invite members of the public to enjoy their music, and to join in.”
