- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Another year comes to a close with the College’s annual Art & Design summer show. Students have worked tirelessly over the past few months, stitching, moulding, painting, constructing and drawing to deliver another spectacular show. “The transformation of the space is an exciting spectacle to witness in one week," Cath Brooks, Curriculum Area Manager.
Pre BA Foundation Art & Design, along with Levels 2 & 3 Diploma students showing work, include those from Graphic Design, Interactive Media, Fashion & Textiles and Design courses, who have all been given the opportunity to devise and carry out a personal design brief. Exciting use is made of a vast range of techniques and processes, many used in surprising and innovative ways.
“The fruition of their labours along with the dedication of the creative team have ensured that the work is once again, unique and fascinating, at times vibrant and uplifting, along with moments of poignancy,” continued Cath.
Ellie Ewart, 19, has just finished her Pre BA Foundation course at the College and will study graphics at Swansea Metropolitan in September “It’s great to leave the College on a high, getting real exhibiting experience just gives us a taste of what’s ahead. We’re all studying different disciplines, fashion, textiles, graphics and fine art, which make us a diverse group of students. It’s because of this that I have learnt so much.”
Zoe Lee, 18, has created an updated version of the tennis dress for 2012, for which she has created her own printed fabric, based on the sole print of a tennis shoe. She will continue her studies next year at Pembrokeshire College on the successful BA Design programme.
Emyr Lloyd, 22, will be studying BA (Hons) in Graphic Communication & Media Design at the University of Dundee in September. His display area explores the prevalence of bacteria in everyday life, producing a campaign for hand washing, combining text and science-based image making.

Hannah Crofton has gained a valuable introduction to materials and processes through the Level 2 Art & Design programme. Her work explores emotion through various media to create a range of outcomes. She will continue her studies on the Level 3 Graphic Design course next year.
