Online Short Course Exhibition 2020

Published on 22.05.20

This year's Short Course Exhibition goes digital; Students submitted their work from 2019/20 classes and workshops from Silversmithing to Screen Printing, which is displayed on our new HCA Library Displays website!

Thank you to everyone who submitted images of their work from Autumn and Spring 2019/20 Short Courses!

Originally, we had intended to host the exhibition at our College Road campus Library, but due to College closure, we had to adapt and go digital; the HCA Library Display website was created and, for the first time ever, the Short Course Exhibition went online!

It’s been a treat to see the array of work made on our diverse Short Course programme and such a wonderful way to showcase the incredible talent of our students since our last exhibition in 2018.

Some students also gave us an insight into what they thought about the course they enrolled on:

“Favourite part of the course: being able to play with fire and dangerous chemicals to satisfy the need to create something” – Silversmithing

“I love the fact that you could just experiment and explore different processes and not get hung up about messing up. – Printmaking

We have been highlighting individuals’ work on the Short Course Instagram page, whilst you can view the entire exhibition on the Library Displays website. It will stay available to view online until our next Library exhibition later this year.
