Students exhibit at annual show

The School of Art & Design will host its Undergraduate Degree Show from Saturday 5 June 2010.

Each year final year students from the Design and Applied Arts, Digital Media, Fine Art & Photography and Visual Communication divisions exhibit their work at the MK Building in Molineux Street.

The School of Art & Design is transformed into an open exhibition space where visitors can find innovative work including ceramics, paintings, sculpture, illustrations, jewellery, rugs, animations, short films and much more.

This year’s exhibits include dresses inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding, origami. BA (Hons) Fashion Accessories student Rebecca Forster has designed the colourful dresses using materials including paper nylon.

A life-sized man made from polystyrene, Styrofoam and pink expanding foam has been created by Clifford Collins, a BA (Hons) Fine Art student.

Sharon Webber, who is studying Textiles, has taken the concept of slow living and slow cooking to design a range of restaurant interiors, including tea-towels, aprons, plates and a chair.

Qucie Green, Marketing Officer, said: “The Degree Show is an excellent opportunity for our students to showcase what they have learnt during their three years at University. We have some really interesting exhibits this year and we wish all of our talented students the best of luck as they head into a range of careers.”

The show is open to the public on Saturday 5 June and Saturday 12 June from 10am to 4pm, and from Monday 7 June to Friday 11 June from 9am to 5pm.
