Studio 4: Assorted Jewels
The Studio provides opportunities for internal and external presentations and exhibitions to a wider audience. The Studio teaches a diverse range of professional but original explorations. These explorations represent the students’ ambition, ideas and their potential in the chosen field of future practice.
This year, Assorted Jewels allowed participants to explore their own hinterland in order to discover individuality through the use of different forms, materials, techniques and stories. This has been achieved through the development of a tacit understanding of the students’ own vocabulary, exploring with 2+3D, materials, functions and aesthetics.
Students have been asked to do a variety of affluent and in-depth experiments, they learnt how to use different methods of testing and making from a given group brief, and had to negotiate with each other to produce self-directed individual pieces or bodies of work.
It is only when making is informed by the mixing up of different processes, methods and strategies, as well as an awareness of possible choices that outcomes can develop into ‘Jewels’.
