The show is all about layers and how once you engage with art the different layers naturally unfold to provide a more
personal meaning to the viewer or wearer.
From the use of greywacke in contemporary jewellery to henna in printmaking students have used an exciting variety of
traditional, organic and more unconventional materials to create pieces that are fresh and unique.
In a world of artificial intelligence and machine generated objects these students are focused on celebrating the art of
bespoke pieces and creating personalised artistic works.
Students will be hosting the exhibition and will be available to talk about their work throughout its duration.
The exhibition runs from 14-19 November 2017, 10am to 5.30pm daily.
