This month, we are pleased to display a selection of work from current students on the BA Design course at Liverpool Hope University.

Each of the five selected students are presenting a collection of work inspired by a visit to the Bluecoat Display Centre’s Jane Adam solo exhibition (2019) and a handling session focusing on surface treatment as part of the Bdc’s ongoing professional development module in partnership with BA Design, which takes place very two years. Additional sources of inspiration came from Blundellsands beach, nature, sea life and contemporary makers and artists.

The students have experimented with surface texture and form, working across a range of disciplines including textiles, ceramics, metalwork and jewellery.
