The web team worked with their teachers Ms Wilson and Ms Brierley to create The Kensington Creatives blog. They learnt about what makes a good blog; how to write and publish posts with videos and photographs; and how to create slideshows and photo galleries. They also researched and wrote the content for the pages on the site.
In addition, they took part in a number of creative or research-based workshops. For example, they visited the Kensington and Chelsea Archives to research the history of Notting Hill Carnival and collect useful images for the project; they worked with a professional photographer, Lute Lightfoot, and artist, Toby Laurent Belson, to learn more about the framing of photographs and trying to find inspiration in normal, everyday settings; and they also went on a walking tour of the local area with artist, Fiona Hawthorne to learn more about her work and being an artist. Each workshop they took part in, they blogged about, including the workshops which the Film Crew took part in too. For example, Kensal Communities Talk by historian Tom Vague; the tour of renowned arts and community venue, The Tabernacle, and the Beginnings of Carnival by Grace and Mike Laslett.
