About us

We are a cohort of 9 and part of an award-winning course with current projects ranging from wind-sensitive lighting to materials development using eggs. With our degree show quickly advancing, we are hoping to raise money to fund our the show at Bower Ashton campus and a show at the Arnolfini gallery in Bristol.

If you would like to see some more of our current work, we have put together a blog, which we will be updating over the coming months: 

The above video was filmed during our second year exhibition and was incredibly rewarding, this year we are hoping to be bigger!

Previous years of the course have won best stand at New Designers (2010), been selected for 100% Design and exhibited with CTRL+N.


We need your help

With a variety of costs to cover and two show installations at the beginning of June, we are in need of support. Over the past few years our course (D3) has relied upon friends, family and other students for funding, unfortunately we are the final year to graduate from our course and have found ourselves at a disadvantage. With so few of us there is a limit to our reach, so we need all the help we can get!


Our plans

With the money we raise ourselves and that raised through Sponsorcraft we will be able to:

- Build the set of our shows (which are usually grand)

- Produce a professional bound brochure and postcards of our work for publicity

- Put out advertisements of our forthcoming shows

- Put on a lively show with drinks and nibbles


We want to go out with a bang and put on the best show yet! Any help, whether it is by passing on the message of our show or sponsorship, would be very gratefully received.


Please feel free to contact us with any queries, or if you simply want to find out more!
