In Pictures: Degree Shows 2019

By Sarah Packer

Our Textile students couldn't stop smiling! Here, they pose for a photo with lecturer Becky Dodman (centre).

Hundreds of visitors explored the work of students at the opening night of our Degree Shows 2019 last Thursday and Friday, as part of Ignite - Festival of Creativity – kickstarting a brilliant week celebrating innovation and the freshest in creative talent.

Industry partners, friends, family, staff, students and members of the public grabbed the opportunity to immerse themselves in this collaborative, creative community as our city centre campus transformed from a vibrant workshop and studio complex into a dynamic, public showcase for new work in art, craft, design and digital media, from 15-20 June.

Studio 11 hosted our Fine Art students with performances, immersive installations and eye-watering speeches on the opening night.

With fantastic work on display (and for sale) across Illustration, Animation, Graphic Design, Crafts, Costume Production, Fine Art, Game Arts, Film, Photography, Painting, Fashion and more, our talented students’ efforts and ambitions are rewarded with time for celebration, feedback and plenty of new opportunities.
