Since the start of this academic year students on the Friday Design group have been learning the basics of graphic design with particular emphasis on colour theory.
Learning that designing and producing products needs to happen very much in advance of the event has been one of the more interesting discussions within the group. Students have spent hours designing and producing their handmade Christmas Cards and by the first week in November were officially declared all Christmas out.

Student Chelsea very busy perfecting her sponge stencil technique. “I never realised how much more accuracy I could get wit a sponge than a brush”
