This past year has flown by and once again its time for the degree shows at Nottingham Trent University. Just one year ago I was presenting my work and so much has happened since. I have been eagerly anticipating the launch of the degree show and viewing the work of the 'new' Decorative Arts graduates.
My first stop was the Notch pop up shop. As part of the course, Dec Arts students are encouraged to open a retail outlet, a platform for selling their work. Its a great experience and I certainly learnt a lot from it. The location of this years shop is perfect, right in the centre of the Lace Market, in the same building as the Photography degree show.
After a stroll around Nottingham it was time to go to the private view. I popped into the Bonington Building first to visit the Textile Design show in the gallery. There were two students who's work I particularly like:
Now on to Dec Arts 'Notch'...
I'd highly recommend a visit to the NTU degree shows, the standard of work is very high and its the perfect place to spot new talent.
A big congratulations to all of the graduates.
