Batley School of Art students’ work goes on show in Mirfield

Budding photographers will have their work featured in an exhibition due to open this week.

Students from the Contemporary Photographic Arts course at Batley School of Art will have their work displayed at Mirfield’s West Yorkshire Print Workshop from tomorrow (Tuesday).

The exhibition will feature silk screen prints that the students have created as part of their Visual Communication module.

Student Hannah Whitehead said: “We’ve loved doing this exhibition. It has been a refreshing change learning a new art form in screen printing.

“There will be nine different students’ work on display and we’re all really proud of the works that we’ve created.”

As well as the prints, the exhibition will include photographs and handmade books the students have put together themselves.

There will be a private viewing at the gallery in Huddersfield Road tomorrow and the exhibition will be open to the public from Wednesday.
