Uni Update: FMP, Final Collection & Degree Show! Phewww!

Hi all,

I know it has been a while but i have had a rather hectic few weeks/months! Between Finishing my FMP , photoshoots and getting ready for my degree show I have hardly had time to sleep let alone write a blog! So I apologise for that but I am here now!

I believe the last Uni Update I gave you, I was trying to decide what my next rug should be etc.. well I did that… and then another one I think? Then I have had two Photoshoots with them so I have some lovely pictures to share with you, I will add a selection but if you want to see more have a look on my website : http://kayleighmarieuk.wix.com/homeandtextiles

There they all are!! What do you think? I had a really great time making them, it has made me kinda sad that I probably won’t get a chance to make any more for a few years. I have to try and save up money to buy my own equipment.

As well as the Rug Collection I had a large collection of designs that could be used for fabrics or wallpapers etc..

Setting everything up was fun, I had plenty of help from my friends and a first year helper!

It was a busy time for me, trying to set up and finish last minute things for my hand-in but it was worth it I suppose,

I should be getting my grade for this project later on today! Exciting stuff. During the show we actually have much less on display  so for the actual show it looked like this:

The show was really exciting! Opening night started quite slowly but when it picked up it was amazing! I got so many compliments as well as people interested in my work so all in all a great time! The show continued for the rest of the week and we had more visitors before we finally took down last friday. It has been a crazy crazy year and a hectic last few months so I am both sad yet glad it is over! Time for a well deserved break I think!!
