A group of Year 8 and 9 students visited Florence Mine this week as part of the national Creative Careers Week.
Creative Careers is a week-long event which ran in England from 18 – 22 November as part of the Creative Careers Programme, which saw over 500 employers from across the creative industries opening their doors to thousands of students aged 11+ to inspire and inform the next generation of workers.
Students were given the opportunity to take part in interactive workshops and learn about some of the lesser-known jobs that exist across the creative industries.
Miss Price said: “Students learned about recycled materials and clothes and had the chance to create a flower using fabric and floristry wire . Students then learned about the cyanotype process before creating one of their own using materials and plants found at the mine.”
