Date: 19 December 2014

Parties galore at The Cass for Christmas Celebrations this year, where the ingestion of art, architecture and design (...and the odd tipple) spread merriment amongst all.

Starting with Christmas Cheers!, students toured the studios, played Ping Pong, smashed Piñata's, enjoyed cakes and party food made by staff and students alongside music dj-ing.

The parties continued over several days, with Art and Architecture joining forces all the way to 'the end of the end' with fabulous end of term ‘Christmas Cracker’ events.

A fitting end to a busy start of the year.. So many student successes including the Spitalfields Christmas Market Awards won by The Cass students in textiles, furniture and product, jewellery and silversmithing for their excellent work with new products and stand displays.

The new year will bring new exhibitions such as the Contemporary Applied Art show, the launching of the Huguenot project, new talks and lectures, and some amazing exhibitions- watch this space...

Anyone for tennis?
