Laura Greenwood

Major Project Update

For her final project, Laura has developed in-depth research into material testing and investigation incorporating the latest trend and colour ideas to create material combinations.
The idea is to create a tactile future, looking at unusual material developments for use as floor, wall and furniture applications within the interiors sector.

Melanie Longbottom

 Melanie is a final year surface Design student whose main focus is printed graphics and the application of metal to leather for fashion design.
Here is a snapshot of some of her work....

Here is a sneaky peak at some of her graphical elements inspired by photographs of natural landforms and damaged infrastructure.

Repeats of inked drawings and graphical elements....

And finally some of her printed textiles.....

Zetland Fundraiser Update

As part of the efforts to raise money for the degree show catalog a craft event was set up by the students at the Zetland venue directly opposite the university.
 Tables were set up to sell and advertise work the students had been doing, also 2 local craft business (Crafty Praxis and Notsosquare Scarf Co) held stalls selling handmade jewellery items made from fabric. 
The fundraiser started during the day and went on into the night a total of £100 was raised.
