Graduates showcase their personal exploration in material and concepts bringing their ideas to life with an emphasis on ‘Thinking through Making’ alongside live projects working with John Lewis & Partners, KEF, Marks & Spencer Home, Wedgwood and the V&A Wedgwood Collection.
Student’s work across a variety of materials embracing both conventional and digital technologies, which reflect current trends and practices in an ever-changing world of the designer maker.
The show is part of Class of ’22 – Three of the UK’s leading university courses for product, furniture, and ceramic design exhibit at Old Spitalfields Market. Kingston University, London Met University, and Staffordshire University host individual graduate shows for their BA and MA students, in three separate spaces all within the iconic market. Visit this graduate hub to discover young talent, intelligent concepts and interesting new products.
Our Award-Winning BA (Hons) Product, Furniture, Ceramics programme at Staffordshire University reflects the global shift in creating objects for the Lived-in Environment post pandemic. Our graduate showcase demonstrates the commitment of our students; the work you will see has not only been Designed by the student but more importantly Made by them to high levels of craftsmanship.
Amongst the exhibits will include the Extraction Paradigm Project; a brief set to students on the MA Ceramics course at Staffordshire University by Bud Moore, co-founder of Ceneic, a London based agency for the promotion of Biodesign. The project worked closely with, and first exhibited at the V&A Wedgwood Collection in Staffordshire, where the students were challenged with the brief of: ‘Extraction of the Earth’s mineral resources is banned. All new products must be made from existing material. Where does this leave ceramics?’
EVENT: Late night opening Tuesday 20th until 9pm
