These fab little ceramic birdhouses were made by the members of the Truro Saturday Art & Design club.
Their theme this year has been `Gardens` and this has been one of a series of workshops exploring a variety of different materials and processes.
Our design students on the UAL L3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design have been working together to create sets for stop motion animation.
Given a basic setting, scenario and era, they have worked in pairs and threes to build these miniature sets using readily available materials. The sets are no larger than 50cm in any direction and some employ forced perspective techniques to create the illusion of larger spaces.
See photos below of the finish, and stunning, work.
Our very own lecturer in 3D, Robin Dowell, has been selected as Axisweb artist of the month for October. Read the article here.
Inspired by collaborative drawings & responding to the theme of the Exquisite Corpse, our 2nd yr ED students have developed fabric & created characters. Translating the expression and personality through selection of fabric and the application of a range of techniques including machine and hand stitch techniques.
On from now until this Sat 27th May, 3pm – Page Turner.
A celebration of great student art from Truro College, Cornwall.
Take yourself down to Lemon Quay Piazza in Truro and become inspired by the wealth of talent on display.
From fine art to jewelry, from architecture to graphics design, and everything in between.
Our 12th annual show, Page Turner.
Promontory’ features new work conceived and built for the show, building on themes and ideas that he has been developing over a number of years.
Stuart’s sculptural installations feature frameworks, structures and illuminated elements intended to explore our shared experience of the everyday and reflect on how the world is presented to us.
The work explores the shapes, colour and materials familiar from our daily encounters of media, signs and surroundings as well as specific inspirations from Plymouth itself.
The show runs until Wednesday 5th April.

Currently in his second year of the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design, Rico Jordi-Slater has a fascination for armour. Having recently created a metal hand piece (pictured) from reclaimed sheet materials including an old cymbal, Rico is now exploring equivalents in the natural world. Working with a batch production process, Rico has cast multiple plaster horse shoe crabs, hand tinting each one with a mixture of inks and paints. Intrigued by their blue blood, which is harvested from many horse shoe crabs because of its medical applications, Rico has even gone to the length of tinting the plaster to reflect this. He is now exploring how their forms might be appropriated to create a visually exciting wearable armour for humans.
The 1st year students studying A-Level Product Design in the Built Environment (PDBE) spent this week improving on their mini model making skills. Their brief was to populate a town with relevant buildings required for its infrastructure. From a list they chose a building type, designed and then built it from green high density foam and scrap material. The photos show some of the best models from the task, including a brutalist police station, twisted linear style high-rise and traditional village church.
