For years our students have delivered innovative, creative & industry standard work which is celebrated in their end of year Graduate Degree show. It is with sadness that this year we are unable to showcase their work at a live exhibition & runway show but we will certainly still be celebrating all our students successes!


This year we are very proud to present to you RE IMAGINE, our online digital showcase for 2021 graduates; a digital environment to enjoy and immerse yourself into the exciting work our students have produced, whilst working through extraordinary times & all that they have conquered during their final Under Graduate year.


Our showcase presents student profiles to visit, videos to watch, 3D galleries to explore, plus heartfelt messages & well wishes from Industry partners along with insights into our students processes this past year as to how they developed their final projects


On Friday 28th of May 2021 please also join us on our Social Media Channels via the links at the bottom of our page as we will be posting regular videos throughout the day in celebration of our students.

PROFESSOR FIONA WALDRON, HEAD OF SCHOOL

Congratulations to all of our graduating class of 2021


Your life is a canvas, fill it with infinite creativity, motivation, excitement and aspirations and find an opportunity in everything you do. Each and every one of you has the capacity to create; through the pandemic, you have learnt to overcome problems, find solutions, you have become resilient, and you have learnt to transform your challenges into incredible outcomes.


These skills are the paintbrushes with which you will transform your canvas into a masterpiece that will be your future.


Remember, nothing is impossible. Good luck, stay in touch and remember we are always here to support you.

MARK PARKER, PROGRAMME DIRECTOR FOR DESIGN FOR TEXTILES AND INTERIOR DESIGN

Dear Students


On behalf of myself and the amazing teaching, technical and admin teams that support the Design For Textiles and Interior Design programmes I would like to say how proud we all are of you and would like to recognise how amazing you have been during this really challenging time for studying on a practical degree programme.


From the students I have had tutorials with across the whole year I have found it so rewarding to see how student groups have embraced flexibility, developed a care for others and kept themselves and their class mates motivated whilst developing ideas for their portfolios in a very professional and mature manner.


Designing for a space or body has never been so important. From an intense period of research, investigation and prototyping I am confident you will emerge as the next generation of designers who will contribute and make an impression on our future.


Be patient, take a pause then plan your strategy.


It’s a time to celebrate.


Have a great show, a few drinks and keep in touch


Mark
