Truro High School is set to add another opportunity to its expansive extra-curricular programme with the launch of a brand new Design and Technology club which will offer girls the chance to create jewellery using the school’s state-of-the-art laser cutter.

Their tutor will be Lou Rose, a highly experienced Design and Technology teacher who currently works as a Design Expert for the Design Museum in Kensington. Her varied design career has included everything from creating the invisibility cloak for the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone film to creating graphics for the South London Art Map which was used in pre-Olympic art tours.

As well as learning how to use the laser cutter, girls will be taught how to master the industry-standard software, 2D Design to create their own exciting acrylic collections – a style of jewellery beloved by fashion insiders and popularised by cult jewellery designers Tatty Devine.

The club will take place every Thursday from 22 April – 27 May (6 sessions) from 4.00-5.30pm. In order to cover all the materials needed, the cost of the club is £40 for these 6 sessions.

For those interested in taking part, there is a free taster session for Truro High Senior School students on Wednesday 24 March from 4.00-5.30pm.

This is open to all girls from Years 7 to 13 and social distancing bubbles will be maintained in our large Art department. In this session, students will have the chance to see how the CAD software can be used to make laser cut shapes for jewellery design.

To book their place for the taster session, students should contact our Head of Creative and Performing Arts, Mrs Judith Tutin at jtutin@trurohigh.co.uk.
