A sparkling day with Theo Fennell & G&T Technology Students

The technology department were delighted to welcome back world renowned jewellery designer Theo Fennell to give three master classes today to 28 year 9 & 10 gifted and talented design students.

In order to earn their place all students had to submit a stunning jewellery design where they had researched materials, stones and processes as well as motifs common in Theo’s work. These were all displayed and critiqued by Theo who gave one to one advice to each of the students on how to develop them further. 
Students also relished the opportunity to take on Theo’s master class challenges where they were asked to first to design a timepiece inspired by nature and then a brooch or ring which opened to reveal a surprise.
The students took on these briefs with enthusiasm producing  impressive ideas and concepts. They used their knowledge of Resistant Materials and Design Technology to complete their designs with detail so they could become actual products, Theo commented how many of these designs could become part of his extensive ranges inspired by nature and mystery.
What’s next? Theo has challenged the 28 students from the master class to develop one working design, they have until half term where they will meet after school to use the workshop facilities to finalise the ideas either on paper or through modelling. These designs will then be posted to Theo Fennell who will select 10 of the students to visit his amazing workshop in London.
