University of Bolton Award Winners 2015

On June 11 we visited The University of Bolton Creative Show – a celebration of the individual practice of students emerging from a wide spectrum of creative specialisms.

We’re passionate about supporting new graduates and bridging the gap between graduation and professional practice by offering a number of opportunities to the brightest new talents during the year after graduation.

For the first time this year we awarded the chance to exhibit at a pop-up showcase here at MCDC to two Textiles & Surface Design graduates from The University of Bolton. The 4-day showcase will launch alongside our Crafts Council Hothouse exhibition in September.

The winners will also receive installation support from the MCDC team, digital promotion through our website and social media and a discounted place at an MCDC Creative Business Development workshop.

Our two winners are Lauren Kelly and Charlotte Frith. Watch this space for more from them later this year!
