Off the wall...

Many of the students have been encouraged to design repeated lengths for their final collections which is fantastic for the degree show in June as it really shows off the skills learnt in the past 3 years. There has been some gorgeous designs emerging in the print room as various students have been giving it a go.

But it is hard work! A design which has different colours requires a screen for each colour, the print table must be recovered, the metal stops of the print table must be measured accurately, amongst other preparations!

Each screen must be precisely lined up against the original design before the metal bar and bolts can be screwed in to ensure each screen will line up with each other when printed.

Above are images of students Ashleigh and Louise as they prepare to print the 3rd colour onto a length of wallpaper. Both students will be displaying their beautiful wallpaper designs at the degree show along with other students who have been printing repeats for fashion as well.
Everyone is getting excited about the show as lots of fantastic work is being produced, and it is becoming clear that the different variety of work will make for a visual treat for everyone coming to the show.
