Maidstone Museum and Erasmus+ Project
The Maidstone Museum is another key Enterprise partner. A Level Product Design Textiles students have recently produced fashion products inspired by the artefacts within the galleries and are currently finalising a new range of scarf designs that will be launched in the museum shop in July of this year.
This enterprise initiative follows on from an Erasmus+ project between five countries across Europe where Invicta students took inspiration from one of the partner countries for a fashion collection and also a range of scarves.
On entry to the school our new year 7 students are encouraged to become a ‘Friend’ of the museum and this has now grown to 80 families. We also have three student ambassadors who work with the museum on a range of activities including social media, youth events and forth coming exhibitions. Two of these are also members of museum’s Curate programme.
