2015: Gabriela Yiaxis and Mossbourne Academy

  • Gabriela  Yiaxis and Mossbourne Academy Masterclass at Whitechapel Gallery

Gabriela Yiaxis and Mossbourne Academy, Hackney, Year 10

Working with architect and costume designer Gabriela Yiaxis, students gained insight into her working life and career path, from advertising to film. Through practical workshop and discussion, they created costumes and developed ideas for a script.

This visit was very useful in increasing cultural capital of my students. It was an invaluable insight into the industry and I was glad students were introduced to options for work experience in this field too. The strong subject knowledge from a working professional combined with very good activities made this session a great success.  Teacher, Mossbourne Academy

I found it a very positive and helpful experience. This is going to help with my textiles in the future. It’s given me some new ideas and insights into design. I found it very entertaining and exciting, especially the creative work when we were designing. Student, Mossbourne Academy

The experience was brilliant. We made moodboard faster then people who do it every day!  Gabriela was amazing, she told us a lot of secrets that are use din the designs, she really inspired me. Student, Mossbourne Academy
