This month we are
taking a break from pattern design and asking you to focus on Photographic Blanks.
We've already had lots of great entries but you have until Monday 3rd
June to get snapping away and enter. Check out the full brief and the
latest entries over here.
Taking place at the Swansea Grand Theatre from the 28th-31st May 2012, the Surface Pattern Design Show brings together thirty four final-year students to create an exciting and diverse exhibition, divided into three disciplines: Contemporary Applied Arts Practice, Textiles for Fashion and Textiles for Interiors.
Materials used include acrylic, metal, wire, glass, porcelain, paper, wood, leather and an impressive range of natural and synthetic fabrics.
The work on show is ambitious, with a wide range of outcomes from drawing and painting to ceramics, photography and printmaking.
The title of the exhibition is ‘Spectrum’, suggesting colour, diversity, breadth and variety.
The De Montfort Art and Design Degree Show celebrates the
talent and innovative work of the final year art and design students.
The exhibition showcases exciting creations by the next generation of
artists and designers across all of the art and design courses and attracts
