Last week I went up to the Business Centre in London to see part 1 of New Designers 2013 - so worth it. Some absolutely amazing work on display. It was huge, and far too much to see in one day. Part 2 is on this week if you fancy going!
All the Universities and Colleges in the UK took part, who have students doing Contemporary Crafts, Textiles, Media, Graphics, Furniture etc - the list seems endless. Third year and MA students were displaying their work at the part I saw. Some wonderful, wonderful pieces, and inspiring to say the least.
The layout of stands was well done and allowed you to move easily between them: each stand had up to thirty students displaying their items. It was good to be able to speak to the artists about their work, and mostly they seemed happy to do so. Well done to all concerned!
