Edinburgh College Of Art Degree Show: 2016

I visited this degree show at the ECA last Saturday. It is really inspiring to see the work of so many young artists, textile and jewellery designers, illustrators and product designers. I recently started a part-time correspondence degree in Textiles, so it was good to see what my 'bricks and mortar' compatriots were doing.

Here are some images from the visit:-

Student Li Wanshu demonstrates the phosphorescent qualities of her jewellery to Margaret, a fellow study visit student from The Open College of The Arts. Li's jewellery collection is based on deep sea creatures. It is made from beads, tubes, nylon, luminous paints, etc and moved about as the wearer moves. My favourite collection in the jewellery section!

 These sculptures are all made from aluminium foil and made me think of corals and fungi formations.

 Costumes for performance arts: this one resembles a bird, with the tweedy fabric cut into feather-like texture.

If you would like to see more images of the show, please visit my learning log blog.
