Mike Gell
There was a good turn out in Small Metals last week when Mike came in to give his anual chat about 'Alloy' which is a Herefordshire based group of jewellers that he co-founded. Alloy has a graduate placement scheme which a number of HCA students have and still are benefiting from.
To find out more about Alloy visit the website at www.alloyjewellers.co.uk

Oh my gosh Lasers! Pewpew pewpewpew!
... a few examples of what we've created recently in the 3D Workshop with the Laser Cutter...

Thursday, 23 May 2013


Here is a selection of prints produced by two FE students. The dramatic linocut prints of people in blindfolds were created by Corinne Benniman (Foundation) and the rather fine drypoint prints were created by Owen Rose (ED1).

Jack Phillips ED2 has worked extremely hard to complete this large format 14 colour lithograph/stencil and card print in the manner of Andy Warhol. Well done Jack!
The casual observer would not realise just how complex and dificult a print like this is to produce as there are so many opportunities for it to go wrong. Concentration is the key.  

Final Major Projects Away!

FE Students from all courses are being busy bee's these last two weeks... Final Major Project deadlines are closing in and some fantastic work is being shipped out!

Have a look for yourselves...

Paper clothes....?

ED students Spike Bradford and Sophie Allen have been enduring paper cuts and endless folding for their Book Arts Design project...

Spike also used handmade paper to make the pocket and label for his Shirt interpretation.

Jack Phillips (ED2) has created this scary image of Marilyn Monroe morphing into George Osbourne in the style of Andy Warhol. The print was created using photo-litho and stencil prints. As with Warhol, there is a selection of different colours in this edition. Watch out for them in his final show.
