Aspiring creatives from our Young Arts Club are set to open a pop-up shop in the college next month (Sat 28 Mar) as part of a Design to Sell project.
The 14-16-year-olds from our National Art&Design Saturday Club group, which is just one of a number of our many Young Arts Club groups for a range of ages, will be selling products they've designed and created as part of a 10 week project.
The young students have been designing artwork to be printed on t-shirts, tote bags, cards and tea-towels – as well as silver rings – and will be selling them themselves at the Design to Sell event.
Rosie Gibson, Young Arts Club Coordinator, said: "The idea behind the National Art&Design Saturday Club is that we inspire the next generation of UK artists and designers, and this event is to show the students that they can make money out of their creativity."
The students have been exploring laser-cutting in our FabLab to create their prints – and will experience a masterclass in jewellery. Each student will make two silver rings, one to keep and one to sell.
After the Design To Sell one-off event – which takes inspiration from our Extended Diploma Art and Design course's event of the same name – the work will remain on display to members of the public in the college reception and online until 25 April.
Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to buy unique, limited edition products, meet the makers, and support our young creatives.
Design To Sell takes place in the college reception area on Saturday 28 March, 11.30am - 1pm.
