LCAD prospectus 08/09

5 Sep

A photo of my degree show work is in the Leeds College of Art & Design 08/09 prospectus. Alongside work that had been made at previous workshops, I exhibited an interactive projection of this Re-Toyed Trash blog and had a workshop bench and materials for visitors to make their own toys with. In the prospectus image my coursemate Bav Shah is making a toy at the workshop bench during his invigilation of our Art & Design degree show.

End of ‘On the Fence’ exhibition

30 Jun

I spent the last day of the exhibition checking out the other student’s work around the college. I was particularly impressed by the Printed Textiles/Surface pattern design show and some of the exhibits in the Visual Communications show were astounding. I came back a few times to check on our exhibition and kept finding more people sat at the workshop bench making some toys from the scrap fabrics. Like this…

Workshop on the final day of the exhibition

The exhibition is now over, we’ve packed up and received our results. Let’s just say, I’m very pleased with them. Click here to view images of the rest of the exhibition.

I have been thinking, I need to organise a new exhibition for all of these new creatures and toys that have been made. Here are some of the makers with their toys…
