Sheffield College students have been selected to showcase their work at an exhibition as part of Sheffield Design Week.

Eye Hand Heart features applied arts, fashion, fine art, games design, graphic design, illustration, interior design, media, photography, product design and textile design.

The public are invited to attend the free show open between 11am until 5pm from June 19th to 25th at the Scottish Queen, South Street, Park Hill, Sheffield. S2 5QX. 

Adult students as well as young learners aged 16 to 18 have created the work. They include Anne Byerley, 51, who has just completed the Access To Higher Education in Art and Design qualification that enables progression onto university. 

Students gain credits that are nationally recognised by colleges, universities and employers, equivalent to A Levels. Anne now has a place on the Creative Art Practice BA Honours Degree at Sheffield Hallam University in September.

Anne said: “Coming to college has been a life changing experience. There are lots of very talented staff and students who've made it an absolute joy to do this course. It’s been amazing, and I’m delighted that my work has been selected for this very prestigious exhibition.”

Kathi Chamberlain, Head of Learning, Design and Visual Art, The Sheffield College, said: “We are proud to showcase an exhibition celebrating the creative talents of our students and hope that it will inspire designers, makers and artists of the future." 

She added: “All students featured are going on to prestigious universities and art schools across the UK including Glasgow School of Art and Central St Martins to continue their creative studies.” 

The end of year shows coincide with a new £8.8 million Sheffield College Centre for Creative Industries at Hillsborough campus, Livesey Street, opening in September 2015.

The new extension will house performing arts, and creative and digital media facilities. For more information about The Sheffield College upgrade click here. It’s not too late to apply for full time courses starting this September. Call 0114 2602600 or find out more by clickinghere
