A fresh look with London School of Fashion
This is a fantastic new resource pack for schools, combining Clothing, Art and Design, Personal Development and RE. In a live presentation, Joanna Jepson uses costumes designed by students at the London College of Fashion to explore five contemporary topics through the lives of Eve, Jacob, Joseph, Rahab and Jesus. Topics covered include environmental sustainability, consumerism, life goals and identity. All was inspired through a project to look at the context of Jesus’ own family tree. The Empty Hanger can be used across the curriculum, providing an ideal opportunity for your church to partner with a local school. To find out more call '01793 418222.
