BTEC Art and Design Trip

Last Friday BTEC Art and Design students visited a printing press to print their logo designs.  Students have been working on a project to design branding for a streetwear company, and they sent their logos off to be etched onto metal plates ready to be printed for their swing tags. Students experienced the hands-on process of using a letterpress machine to print their logos, which was a fun and informative learning experience!
