Design to Sell

Coming soon: Design to Sell - a collaboration between our 2nd year Extended Diploma Art, Design, Fashion, Craft and Textile students.

Tuesday 10 December - Friday 13 December 2013

Exhibition Opening
Monday 9 December 2013, 6.30-8.30pm

This December, our Extended Diploma Art, Design, Fashion, Craft and Textile students will delight shoppers in Plymouth with a range of unique, wonderful and affordable designs for sale to the public. Just in time for Christmas!

The Design to Sell show launches on Monday 9th December 2013, and runs until Friday 13th December 2013. This is a great opportunity to see and buy high-quality, handmade products from some of the hottest upcoming artists and designers.

The aim of this show is for the students to gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the commercial side of art and design, equipping them with the skills they need to work in the competitive creative industries.

The artwork will include a variety from illustration, painting, glasswork, metalwork, ceramics, photography, fashion, game design, textiles, printmaking, furniture design and much more…

This is going to be a thrilling show for both students and the public. The students have organised the show with guidance from tutors. They have found creative ways to fundraise the money for the show, from cake sales to fancy dress photo booths.

For the 20 years this project has been running the outcomes for the students have been consistently valuable. In past years students have gained in-depth skills in business management, with one student starting a t-shirt printing business and another setting up an online shop to sell her artwork.

Make sure you find time to call in to the show. We're sure you will find something unique and wonderful to buy in the run up to Christmas.
