Friends of Brookfield School - Projects Supported

How is the money we've raised being spent?

The Year 10 students have been using the new heat press equipment that FOBS kindly allowed us to purchase to benefit the students' coursework and have been experimenting with the heat dyes and different fabrics and surfaces to create some of the techniques you can see on the photos below. The students are really excited to use the new equipment and it will hugely benefit their coursework and the creative process.
