EXHIBITION : September 14, 2017 — September 16, 2017.
Bolton University Graduate Showcase
Carys Lavin & Tiffany Maksymow
University of Bolton Textiles & Surface Design graduates Carys Lavin and Tiffany Maksymow will be showcasing their collections here at Manchester Craft & Design Centre from Thursday 14th to Saturday 16th September 2017.
Carys is fascinated with the idea of memories and how we remember things as memories fade and change. Using laser cutting and weaving techniques, she tells a story of how memories fall away but can be reconstructed differently.
Tiffany’s work is a visual representation of personal emotion; it is a project about personal struggles and emotions and the inherent way, as humans, we find life within light.
The two graduates were awarded this special opportunity at The University of Bolton Creative Show earlier this year. The three-day showcase will open alongside our Katab exhibition at a special launch event on September 14th.
