I have been using the wall paintings at the museum as inspiration for my Tudor Costume Project for the past months, so I thought it would be interesting to do the same as a group. After collecting research through sketches and note-taking each of the 7 Arts Award 'Explorers' designed their own unique stencils to print - and I was amazed at how different every body's was, considering we had all started from the exact same inspiration!
Here are a few photos of the day and the great finished bags:

Some chose to focus their designs on images found in the paintings,
others were inspired by motifs of flowers or animals.
