I feel rather privileged to be invited to exhibit 2 pieces of work from my current collection flockOmania as an Alumni of Sir John Cass in a forthcoming exhibition titled ‘The Cass: Hands on’ at The Aram Gallery during August 2016
Nicknamed the ‘Aldgate Bauhaus’, The Cass (The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, London Metropolitan University) has been part of the creative landscape of east London for over 100 years. As the faculty prepares to leave Aldgate and relocate to the University’s new Islington campus, The Aram Gallery hosts an exhibition celebrating its successes and enduring legacy.
As part of the gallery’s ongoing interest in process, The Cass: Hands On will show new and experimental design at the roots, using this versatile school and its history as the focus.
Work by a range of students, alumni and staff will represent the wide variety of courses on offer, including jewellery, silversmithing, furniture upholstery, and musical-instrument making. Alongside finished products, the exhibition will also reflect the Cass’s dedication to making within its teaching philosophy. A display of hand tools and a wall of experimental ceramic studies will give a taste of the school’s workshop atmosphere.
The exhibition also anticipates the future of the Cass, with its latest generation of graduating designers included in the mix.
