A level Product Design students had the chance to showcase their work on Wednesday 22 May. The annual exhibition for this department took place from 5 to 6:30pm so that parents, staff and students would all have the chance to view the project pieces on display. Highlights included:

  • The chessboard and pieces created by Charlotte Jones using epoxy resin casting and low temperature pewter casting.
  • Ash Allen’s oak storage box for Dungeons and Dragons game pieces. The design includes sliding drawers and a resin lid for dice rolling with embedded timber sections.
  • Jai Mistry’s flat-pack record player and vinyl storage unit.

Mr Ian Granger, Head of Product Design, said, ‘We are extremely proud of the dedication and enthusiasm shown by students this year as they adapted to the new specification criteria. They have produced some outstanding prototypes with many moving features.’

Notre Dame’s Principal Mrs Justine Barlow also attended the event, and was very impressed with the quality and professionalism of the work produced.
