Camac Challenge Success

Nine students from across all three levels of BA Textile Design at The Cass have been selected from over 250 entries to show their work at the Warner Textile Archive Gallery.
Date: 28 May 2014

In what must be something of a record, nine students from across all three levels of BA Textile Design at The Cass have been selected from over 250 entries to show their work at the Warner Textile Archive Gallery.

Entrants worked to an Art Deco Brief devised by Caroline McNamara from Camac, and were challenged to produce an innovative and contemporary mixed-media textile-related response from an archival document at the Warner Textile Archive. Techniques included stitch, print, applique and weave, to produce a contemporary updating of the Art Deco theme. The project encourages students to work independently, and to experiment with unusual processes.

One of the winning student designs, by First Year Sabrina Begum, has also been selected to be made into a postcard, as one of six overall best designs, and is now on sale.


The winning students will have their work exhibited at the Warner Museum until 5thJuly after which finalists will be shown at the London Design Festival in September.
