Famous Designer Commends Flourish Pupils’ Work
Wednesday, 29 June 2022
Year 5 and Year 6 children who attended the Flourish programme at Bolton School had their t-shirt designs commended by Tom Abbiss Smith, an award-winning contemporary designer.
The young pupils from Wigan and Chorley, who attended the Saturday sessions free of charge through a scheme set up by Bolton School and the youth charity OnSide, were asked to create their own textile spray painted t-shirts based on the designs of Tom Abiss Smith.
When photos of the designs were posted on Art Teacher Mrs Brewer’s Instagram account, the designer responded by saying ‘Love them!’
The new Flourish programme aims to promote social mobility by encouraging a wider range of applications to the School’s bursary scheme. It led directly to eight young people taking the School’s entrance exam earlier this year.
