AA2A so far...


 

This year has been an exciting year for me, starting and soon finishing an MA. Alongside this I have acted as the AA2A rep for Manchester School of Art and it has been great to get to know the different artists and find out more about their work. We have had informal chats, blogs and a mini symposium at end of the year to showcase their work in a presentation format. It was also great to see some of the artist’s working in his or her own studio. Overall I am looking forward to see the work come together in a final exhibition.
 
The experience has highlighted the huge benefits of the AA2A scheme, the ability to access equipment once out of education for a year. As a textile artist facilities such as screen printing and the multihead are invaluable tools to my practice and I will definitely consider applying to the AA2A scheme myself.  The scheme also offers opportunity to work with students and gain advice from those around you in a thriving and creative community.
 
Here are links to each of the artist’s work so you can find out more about them.
