Given free reign to use their imaginations Ramsgrange Community School students created some astonishing works of Junk Kouture 'clothing', getting through to the regional finals this week.

Working with art teacher Avril Buttle, the Transition Year students began designing their creations in September, coming up with concept ideas. They worked in groups of three to finalise their works of art which are part of their Transition Year programme.

Competing in the national competition, the students had to come up with a design using sound or recyclable objects.

Ms Buttle said: 'They had complete free reign and could use whatever they wanted. They worked in teams of three.'

The students - which included teams of males and females - uploaded their final creations to the Junk Kouture website for judges to pour over.

'It was great for the girls and boys to be mixed together and we even had some male models. Every one of the students loved being part of it. It was a lot of hard work, which started in September and involves the community both inside and outside the school.'
