Blog of a veggie lady who can't stay in one place for too long, loves to dumpster dive, loves to craft and can rant about feminism for hours! Just little notes and photos from my travels and the qwirky, fun, arty and ridiculous things I've seen! (and things I've found in bins.)
Some pictures from the degree show opening. It went so well =] I had so much wine it was ridiculous. Lovely people came and it was a real nice end to 4 years of stress!
Gorgeous Surface Design work from Sarah Hutchinson (email@example.com). I love the block colours and bold line drawing. This is the kind of thing I’d love to have as curtains!
Really gorgeous work from BA Surface Design final year Lucy Kendall (firstname.lastname@example.org). I love her bold graphic style mixed with the more floaty contrasted background. Her degree show work was striking and I could see it easily selling somewhere like Ikea!
These gorgeous bird pieces are by Sophie Fodden and the shadow boxes are possibly Alice Screaton’s… I’m not sure!
The earthy knitwear is Cicely Chilvers, I love how she’s put so much effort into making her display have a real impact!
Sadly, I don’t know whose the beautiful jewellery is, and can’t find it in the Degree Show catalogue =/ I’ve been corrected and told it’s Catherine Vernon’s! http://www.catherinevernon.co.uk/
But the lovely fabric work is by Saarah Mughal.
The video I’ve photoed is an amazing piece by Charlotte Flynn for Alzheimers Awareness. It was really moving and fantastically done. It was a stop motion type thing with objects moving about and appearing in the wrong places, I’ve never seen someone on our course do something like it before and it was really inspiring.
I then went up to Huddersfield for a few days to see the Degree Show, and to catch up with people. it was so nice to be back, Huddersfield just seems so homely now! Everyones work was looking amazing and it was lovely to see everyone again.
I loved Rebekah Startin’s knitted clothing, it was just gorgeous and such lovely colours!
I always love Holly Levell’s work, but her degree show work was so unique, vibrant and skillfull.
Similarly, I always love Cat Bolton’s children’s illustrations, and seeing it put into a book was fantastic.
Last few Leeds Met bits and bobs. Also, Leeds has suddenly got some FANTASTIC graffiti, I don’t know where it’s come from but it’s lovely! And I lost the pictures. But should find them soon!
