Celebrating Design at Hope

16 September – 29 October 2022


This curated display celebrates our creative partnership, over many years, with the BA Design degree course at Liverpool Hope University. This partnership has enabled professional development and work experience placement for students and graduates, residencies, visiting speakers, and exhibition opportunities for graduates, staff and makers in residence through Crafts Council programmes like Hothouse and Next Move.

In recognition of our collaboration, as well as the importance of applied art and design courses, we are showing the work of Hope Design graduates, past and current staff, and residency makers.
