Phoebe, age 6, has won her age category in the latest Pierre Cochon t-shirt design competition. Pierre Cochon is a printing company based in Westbury. Phoebe won her category with a spectacular rainbow collage created with photographs taken on her daily walk with her family. Pierre Cochon are printing t-shirts depicting Phoebe’s winning design in order to raise money for NHS Charities Together.
Design skills clearly run in the family as Phoebe is the daughter of St John’s Marlborough Design & Technology teacher Gary England who has been busy coordinating a project to produce face screens and cotton drawstring bags for NHS and key workers.
Gary has also been busy setting work for his students to complete at home and Tweeting ideas for projects that parents can suggest to children from the @StJohnsSTEM1 Twitter account.
Phoebe and her sister Amelia, aged 9, decided to adapt one of the ideas in order to enter the t-shirt competition.
Gary said, “Other than help to print the photos, the designs were all their own work. The collage idea came from a STEM activities poster I tweeted out a while ago which they have on the wall of their study.
We went for our one walk of the day and they took 190 photos between them, which I printed and helped cut them out. Beyond that it was all them! The rainbows are now in the window of our home.
The competition prize was originally one t-shirt but after Phoebe won Pierre Cochon asked if they could print and sell the design to raise money for NHS Charities Together campaign. Of course we said yes and the girls are so excited about the launch of it!”
The t-shirts are available in adult and child sizes and can be ordered here: https://pierrecochon.com/search?q=key+worker
