Kat, from ED2, produced this great piece of work in the Ceramics and 3D Workshops. The turtle was produced from chicken wire, overlaid with plaster bandage and then painted and flocked. The cityscape was constucted in thin sheet steel and spot welded together. The windows were cut out using the plasma cutter. Kat worked really hard to make this happen, see if you can get along to the exhibition and see it in the flesh, it's very impressive.

Extended Diploma First Year have recently finished a project run in conjunction with the 3D Dept. The students took ordinary white bathroom tiles and sandblasted an image on to the surface. Having done that, they applied oil paint to the porous surafce. The results were really colourful and bright. Well done to all involved ;-)

The ED2 Textiles group having been working hard over the past 5weeks on their current suface pattern brief. Below are some snap shots of their final samples...it is so refreshing seeing the inderviduality of each student and how they have interpreted the brief.
Im looking forward to working with them and their tutor Kay for their final show.

Chris is a student on the Portfolio Course and can nearly always be found in the Small Metals workshop...
She has worked extreamly hard learning new skills and perfecting the skills she has gained in the workshop. Chris produces a huge amount of work in the two days she is in the workshop each week and every piece is finished to a high level.
Chris intends staying on at HCA by joining the Jewellery Design degree course...it will be great to have Chris around for another couple of years ;-)
