That's the end of that chapter, bring on the next!

New Designers Exhibition, London

So we all got the chance to take part in a exhibition in London!

Here I have taken pictures of some of the students' work that was on our stand.

It was nice to see another course from our University at the exhibition, their stand looked really professional. 

UCA Rochester at New Designers

There was some truly amazing talent at New Designers and it was so much fun exploring the exhibition and witnessing some amazing work.

Below are just some of the pieces of work from different universities that I came across that I really enjoyed...

What I liked about the exhibition was that it had such a mixture of courses. There was work from courses such as jewellery, applied arts, ceramics, textiles, fashion etc.

Exhibition from above

Taking part in this exhibition was a really exciting experience. I managed to get two craft fair opportunities from it, which I'm very happy about.

It was also a great opportunity to see other students' work, to get a good idea of how to present your work professionally and to get some ideas in case another exhibition opportunity comes along.

Receiving positive feedback from people really helped with my confidence with my work, which I'm sure a lot of the other students would agree with too.

All in all it was a very positive experience and an end of an era!

However it is now the start of a new chapter in my life, which will hopefully start in Scotland.
