Official Press Release
Sample 12 Exhibition, Textile Crafts Degree Show, University of Huddersfield
The Technology Building, University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield from 16th – 22nd June 2012
You are invited to come and see the result of three years of hard work at this year’s Sample Degree Show, a professional exhibition to showcase the work from the final year Textile Craft students of 2012. As well as the free exhibition, there will also be a number of free textile crafts based workshops and a prize draw, giving you the chance to win students work among other prizes from our sponsors.
Sample 12 is the annual degree show, with accompanying catalogue, for Textile Craft (BA Hons) at the University of Huddersfield. The exhibition features work from all final year students, which encompasses areas of art, design and product, in the disciplines of knit, weave, print and embroidery. While at the exhibition you can also pick up a copy of the Sample 12 catalogue. The catalogue is designed by graphic design students, in collaboration with the textile craft students. It has been professionally printed and bound, and it features high quality photographs of work from most of the artists and designers featured in the show, taken by photographer Andrew Farrington.
The student led workshops that run alongside the exhibition are suitable for all ages and skill levels, whether you are a knitting nanny or completely new to all things crafts. They will cover a range of textile craft techniques such as knitting, crochet, braiding and weaving. Best of all they are free of charge, and all the materials will be provided - all you will need to bring is an imagination!
Exact classes, times and dates will be confirmed closer to the time so please keep an eye on our blogs for more information.
