On Friday 22nd March Miss Kempe’s Year 8 Textiles class were extremely lucky to receive a visit from Birds of Prey. The birds that featured in this visit include a Barn Owl, Peregrine Falcon and Buzzard. The students thoroughly enjoyed the hour that they had with the birds and produced some fantastic work! The students spent around 15 minutes with each bird. They were asked to focus on observational techniques such as texture, tone, continual line and a  variety of mark making skills. The Art Department would like to thank ‘Feathers and Fur’ Falconry Center from Hare Hatch for their hospitality.
