Our classmates used their knowledge of the 'food and kitchen' class theme to produce meal time pictures and recipe cards.

Bright and colourful illustrations of kitchen utensils and delicious food items were assembled to 'cook up' a world of inviting recipe ideas.Here is a selection of what they created.

Mmm, so tasty! If you happen to give any of these a try, be sure to let us know.

About the Art

Following a design brief from FolioFocus, classmates used their own perspective of 'Waves & Washes' to create these works of art.

Abstract, vibrant and playful colour palettes were the focus on week 4 - the classmates captured the surf and swell within their designs and created beautiful soft furnishings with some added charm.

Time to Shine: New Card Line by Christine Gardner

This completely adorable set of birthday stationery was designed by Christine Gardner. Starting with a pattern collection, Christine then applied the characters to these wonderful cards. 

"I have just launched this new collection which I was only brave enough to complete after taking your FolioFocus course! I was never confident with characters at all but enjoyed that week on the Folio Focus course so much I thought I would give it a go! I came up with the pattern collection first and then added the characters to cards. I'd like to combine the two soon and create a character pattern." - Christine Gardner

These and many other beautiful designs are available to buy on Christine's site: christinegardner.co.uk/shop-1
