Bolton University Textiles Showcase
Luke Mason, Abbie McAndrews & Cheyenne Slater
University of Bolton Textiles & Surface Design graduates Luke Mason, Abbie McAndrews and Cheyenne Slater will be showcasing their collections here at Manchester Craft & Design Centre from Thursday 8th to Sunday 11th September 2016.
Luke’s collection of home interior fabrics, wall coverings and stationery products are inspired by Italian architecture. Abbie’s work aims to capture and preserve the textures and shapes found in nature. And Cheyenne’s combination of beautiful floral designs and geometric shapes are inspired by her passion for origami.
The three graduates were awarded this special opportunity at The University of Bolton Creative Show earlier this year. The four-day showcase will open alongside our HAND CRAFT exhibition at a special launch event on September 8th.
