Design to Sell 2019

Design to Sell is back again this year, with students from across our Extended Diploma courses coming together to create and sell handmade work.

Now in it's thirty sixth year, the annual Design to Sell event is a unique opportunity for Pre-Degree students to design, promote and sell their own work in a pop-up shop and exhibition, gaining real-world experience as young entrepreneurs. The makers market will feature an eclectic range of work created by 16 to 19-year-old students, including illustration, painting, glasswork, metalwork, ceramics, photography, fashion, textiles, printmaking and more.

Each year students work to brand the event, pitching their design and marketing ideas to their peers in response to a brief set by the college. This year’s theme is ‘Space Odyssey’, with visitors experiencing a cosmic setting inspired by space, time and exploration. 

Get a first peek on Wednesday 4 December, 6-8pm, where students will be exhibiting artworks for sale at the annual fair – a chance to pick up one-of-a-kind creations from local emerging creatives.

Can’t make the opening night? Don’t worry, this year’s Design to Sell will be open to the public on Thursday 5 December, from 9.30am-4.30pm at our Palace Court campus.
