digital montage

Today`s photography workshop session was all about new blending with old.
Using Photoshop the students were tasked with creating a digital photomontage.
They referenced the work of Hannah Hoch (dadaism) and Peter Blake (pop art) to create montages based on themes, nature, outer space etc.
Using digital tools instead of scissors and glue they created there own homage to the montage.

repeat pattern


Extended Diploma Art and Design students have been developing ideas for a repeat pattern block printing in a a workshop this month.
Some students are at the early stages of printing their designs, with the intention of layering multiple colours and reducing the printing block.
The designs are cut into the lino squares, then inked by roller before printing the pattern by hand, or foot!

get set go

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.

Ceramic Patchwork

Second Year Extended Diploma Students on the Design pathway reassembled damaged and unwanted crockery inspired by the work of Zoe Hillyard.

They wrapped each fragment with salvaged fabrics, stitching by hand to reassemble them into newly constructed forms.

During the project we have focused on working solely with salvaged materials to create woven and constructed textiles.

steel sculpture

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.

geometric forms

Second Year Design students on the UAL L3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design recently visited Royal Cornwall Museum on a research trip.
Responding to the incredible mineral collections there, they developed a series of geometric forms which suggest the crystalline structures to which they refer. Developing skills with brazing, casting, construction and reductive techniques, the students created their own collections of forms.
