Degree Show Funding

As part of the Professional Practice element of our degree BA (Hons) Applied Art with Enterprise we as a group have to raise £120 each for our contribution to our final degree show in June.

The following shows our achievements so far 
(omitting the North Sea Dip which I opted out of but hats of to those that did it !)

Results from Raffle we held over Christmas
We all contributed presents to a hamper and set about selling tickets. The prize looked fantastic and I think we were ahead of the other students as we started earlier.
I raised £78 from clients it was easier for me I have a captive audience with the salon and with the rest of the group we raised nearly £300!


We arrange for professional photography

‘Jen & her fellow students are raising funds for their degree show next year. These are the raffle prizes 
1st prize the massive hamper which includes £100 to spend on services at The Edge Hair & Beauty, and lots of handmade crafts worth £250 in total.
2nd & 3rd prize are hampers from Body Shop worth £28 each!
£1 per strip available from salon and base room at CCAD Hartlepool.
You've got to be in it to win it !!’

My salon had donated a voucher for £100 and here are the results....
A textile student won and her and her family loved the prizes.. it was her 21st too !

Result of the prize winnings 

 Tombola held in Event week.

This was quieter than anticipated but we still raised £50 from this.

We will be continuing with the Tombola at various venues until all the prizes have been won

Guess the quantity of sweets in a jar?

We all contributed £4 and Ally went to spend the money on sweets!

We divided them up into thirds so I could have one just for the salon. 

I opted out of the North Sea dip so I needed to make up an extra £30 on this... It is ongoing and the winner will be notified on the 26th April.

The other jars are circulating CCAD and students families

If you would like to contribute please get in touch via this

How long does it take to round up and finish a module? The professional practice element to this degree has been  great and informative but everything seems to be taking so much longer than planned..........................

Business card done- now back to everything else!

About me

After spending  loads of time setting pages for promotion of your business or as in my case businesses. What do you actually put on your business cards it could be a list a mile long!

During our Professional Practice lectures we learnt about the 'about me' page which stores all your info on one page then prospective interested parties can choose which link to  view and see what your are all about.

So here's me

Mono Printing is taking over my life!

Design Development

I am still in the design development stage and need to make the final decisions of what products I'm actually going to make for my final Degree show in June (eeekks!!!)

HAND in is 10th May 2013

 Mono printing has to be one of my techniques I just love the surprise of the print when lifting the screen up of the fabric!

Pattern applied and dried to screen 
First Print

Second Print
It amazes me every time, the colour difference I love both and think they work really well printed on the crisp white Egyptian cotton

Colour was fixed using a hot iron then Manutex was rinse . Hand embroidery was applied to embelish, using french knots (2 hours worth) in a co-ordinating coloured thread 

As above to the second print with a block of french knots to echo the left corner and a weave to echo the check pattern

These will work beautifully as framed pieces also I would love to develop onto scarfs.

I might find it hard to part with these though. Does anyone else feel like that with their finished pieces?
