The Slow Design School has had an amazing first year! The breadth and depth of work undertaken is exemplary with funding applications, publication and PhD candidacy now underway. Watch this space for details of our exciting graduate projects from Zoe Burt’s Grow Your Own Fashion to Sarah Marais’s Making & Flourishing: Crafts Practice as a Means of Building Community Assets, Health & Well-being. If you’re ready to extend your creative roots into UK and EU soil then this is the place. Equally, if you’re a teacher looking for inspiration and new knowledge then you’ve come to the right place. We take your practice to another level of value, complexity and sophistication. Details of Slow Design School enrolment for Spring 2014 here.
As always, we’re ahead of the game with our Skills Development Training and uber-talented members and tutors! Next date for Skills Development Training is August 3rd 2013 for Mountmellick Embroidery White on White with Zoe Powell.
We’re delighted to announce that silk triptychs created by STG founder, Emma Neuberg, whilst Artist in Residence (AA2A) at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London, are selected for an exciting new exhibition exploring surface, texture, semiotics and meaning taking place February 13th to April 14th 2013 at Chelsea FutureSpace.
The show represents an introduction to the study of surface as texture and skin to interpret and express the liminal space between internal and external worlds. Other artists in the show include Sanghyun Kim and Kangwook Lee.
Each of those designer’s work is so diverse, and many others’ who have worked with LPT, yet all display a mix of lyricism, wit and energy that is quintessentially British. That’s what makes them so timeless, iconic and desirable!
The London Printworks Trust is synonymous with nurturing and promoting these qualities so it is with great excitement and honour that TSTG has their first Practice+Theory event there this Saturday!
There’s no advert for this event as it’s exclusive to the Slow Design School Programme however, we’ll be putting some pics on Twitter for you to enjoy!
