Mini Models

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.

Clay Modelling with the Fluffs.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


With a view to letting the product design students get to grips with multiple forms of modelling, each week they are tackling a new medium.
This week it was clay. Terracotta to be exact.
With a little help from the ceramics technician Reece the class all had a go at making their own clay hedgehogs.
Everyone produced their own version of the little blighters, some looking more rat than hedgehog, and others more friendly and less menacing than some.
Next week the students tackle balsa wood carving.
