Inspired by George Clarke’s T.V programme (Shed of the Year, Channel 4) the Saturday Art club designed and made for wooden buildings.
It was quite a challenge to produce something in 2 hours from scratch but the students rose to the challenge. There was a frenzy of sawing and gluing, and the production of some imaginative constructions.
Design Pathway students on the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design have just completed their set designs for the Royal Opera House’s Design Challenge, a live brief in which they are competing.
Asked to respond to one of four possible Director’s visions, they have developed a broad range of exciting solutions. These range from designs based on medieval Verona to dystopian futures.
Included in this selection is work from Matilda Fuller, Eleanor Bolton, Thomas Parker, Ellie Pyner and Abigail Kennedy.
3d Design Extended Diploma student Felix has made a mild steel sculptural piece of work as part of his course.
This work has been inspired by and references a support section of a roof designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano.
Felix collaborated with the welding apprentices at Truro college to produce the work which has been made by radius bending and MIG welding 8mm Mild Steel.
Felix is now considering how the object will be finished, displayed and documented and is already thinking about making new work for the course developing on these new skills he has acquired.
With Special thanks to all the workshop team and apprentices at Seaton for supporting Felix in his project.
PDBE students have got all iterative!!!
Iterative: a procedure in which repetition of a sequence of operations yields results successively closer to a desired result.
PDBE students have made beautiful sketches from their workshop models and SolidWorks drawings, making observational studies which they gradually stylised. These drawings will then be used to inform further models and SolidWorks designs, very iterative!
