The work presented is by Leeds College of Art BA (Hons) Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design students, currently in the 1st year. It comprises their response to a Design Module, focusing on Paper as a substrate. They are encouraged to research into possible solutions, including Artists Books, Look/Pattern Books, Wall coverings or Installation pieces. They choose from a wide range of workshops, selecting three specific processes from which to develop their ideas; the workshops include both printmaking and digital responses (Illustrator). The key element is the focus on developing skill, and craftsmanship, whether they are working within analogue or digital contexts.
