Students from Creative industries at Craven College put on a magnificent End of Year Show entitled ‘Creative Carbon'. The exhibits demonstrated a unique fusion of fine art, fashion, photography, jewellery, 3D design, textiles, graphics and computing, interlaced by theatre, film and media make-up creations.
Theresa Savage, Head of School, said: ‘The quality of work, at all levels, is truly inspiring. I am extremely proud of all our students and the work they create. As well as acquiring unique specialist knowledge, our students learn invaluable employability skills during their time with us, through bespoke work experience and working collaboratively with each other. Craven College is indebted to the commitment and contribution of our staff and students'.
This year's show aimed to stimulate the thoughts and senses of all our guests differently. From the eclectic stories of Aesops Fables, staged by Performing Arts students in the College amphitheatre, to the Pernicious Beasties, housed in the atmospheric Emporium of Curiosities and made by the superb Theatrical Media Make-Up students.
This is Me, from the Greatest Showman, an anthem to the marginalized in society opened the show, sung by Performing Arts students and celebrating the tolerant and inclusive community to which we all belong.
Many diverse, richly textured fashion garments were on show, inspired by themes from robot films and a visit from international graffiti artist, George Banks. And finally, ‘Carbon Copy Cinema' celebrated 2018's film and television productions, from the Creative Media students and staff team.
Special guest, Simon Morris from Leeds Beckett University gave an entertaining speech about the letter he wrote to Eva Hess before giving prizes to some very worthy winners from each area of the School of Creative Industries.
