Manchester School of Art Degree Show 2012 Part One

June 18, 2012

I went to the Manchester Metropolitan Degree Show on Sunday, which finishes this wednesday at 4pm. I was mainly interested in seeing the Fashion, Textiles, Illustration and Graphics shows. They had swapped their usual venue off oxford road for a smaller space at Quay House on Quay Street, just off Deansgate. In the foyer I was treated to a visual embroidered feast by Ayasha Wood and some rather risque beer mats by Graphics student Katie Lawes.

Some great imagery and printed textiles from the likes of Emma Alviti, Sabah Butt, Jessica Chandler, Laura Binyon and Naomi Hiett.

More from Anna Paton McGilp, Hayley Godfrey, Vicky Mellor, Natalie Simone Davies, Francesca Guarracino.

Textiles for Fashion from Leanne Alladice, lovely dreamy prints and photography from Emma Bee, Amie Waiting, Eve Horton, Eleanor Shore, Melissa Chappell and Conall O’Brien.

Bethan Lumb’s pencil drawings and her mark makings have developed into a sophisticated range of scarves and Chloe Hamill‘s work exploring the representation of female refugees through the visualisation of birds.

Kate Berry and Hana Awwad show us some decorative and 3-D Wallcoverings.

Here’s a quick feel for the space, look out for part two of this blog in a couple of days.
