Editions of You: trips and visits
The 3D Studio, Editions of You, visited Oxford for the day, where they saw ‘Love is Enough’ at The Museum of Modern Art.
Museum of Modern Art and the Pitt Rivers Museum
The 3D Studio, Editions of You, visited Oxford for the day, where they saw ‘Love is Enough’ at The Museum of Modern Art. This exhibition brought together the work of Andy Warhol and William Morris, curated by the artist and Cass visiting lecturer: Jeremy Deller. Students were inspired by the combination, viewing prints, wallpapers and tapestries by both artists, showing they had a surprising amount in common.
Rare pieces such as the tapestry of Andy Warhol’s ‘Marilyn’ were shown, along with his photo albums of film stars made during his childhood. The methods the artists used were an important part of the exhibition- a length of Morris wallpaper showed the colour added block by block, building up the to the full design.
Demonstrations of screen and block printing took place in the workshops in the Museum.
The trip also included a walk through the colleges of Oxford University, passing the Bodleian Library on route to the Pitt Rivers Museum. The extraordinary collections at the Pitt Rivers can provide endless inspiration to textile designers - from fossils to beetles, and Japanese puppets to Nigerian masks.
Trip to Bay and Brown Textile Studio
Editions of You also visited the textile studio Bay and Brown for an insight into a working fashion textile studio. Natalie Hands, one of the leading designers, led the tour, explaining the stages of design development, and the collections and the clients that Bay and Brown sell to around the world.
Students were able to see the collection of hundreds of textile pieces up close, and to talk through the techniques and design themes. This valuable information will inform the student's work this term, as they produce their own fashion textile collections.
