If you are in the area, it’s worth a lil’look……
For the exhibition By Hand / On Foot, I really wanted to take advantage of this interactive space by working on-site in the exhibition space for a week, interacting with passerbys, most of whom were lecturers and students whilst installing Ship to Shore, a 4m x 4m shipwreck sketch.
Also whilst in Taunton for the week, I did a wee bit of lecturing….which I rather enjoyed. Felt great being back in College.Very inspiring.
Best of luck to all the 3rd years I spoke with at the College and also a big thank you to Kirsty who helped me out one morning threading, it was great working with you and looking forward to seeing your stand at New Designers next year

Also a big thank you to Imelda, Neil and all the other staff at the college who were all so helpful and lovely during the installation.

The show runs until the 27th of November. After that Ship to Shore will be no more; it’s only temporary so catch if you can !!
