These exuberant, fun and colourful designs are a great introduction to Art and Design of the Sixties’ pop era and show the cross-fertilisation of ideas in painting, textiles and furniture design.
Although designed to be used in conjunction with an exhibition visit, this learning journey can be used by teachers in the classroom and is intended to be of use beyond the life of the exhibition.
Background information is included on the textile production company Hull Traders, Shirley Craven and other artist-designers whose work feature in the exhibition. There are suggestions for activities and extended project work based on themes within the exhibition. Resources include tips for practical work and the screen-printing process as well as downloadable worksheets which can be used in looking at some of the designs.
