Applied Arts Exhibition – Erddig – the Exhibition will be open over the Easter holidays. Entry is free to Glyndwr staff and Art and Design based students; just inform staff at the ticket office of your affiliation with Glyndwr.

Applied Arts, design and good craftsmanship are important to our heritage, as without them there would be very little physical evidence of our history; what was in vogue and what people held dear to them at that time.

With this in mind, Glyndwr’s Applied Arts department has forged strong links with the local National Trust properties of Erddig and Chirk Castle. Currently the department has an exhibition of second year students’ work around the formal gardens and buildings of Erddig. The Applied Arts students’ work is of such a high standard, that within its first week of opening students are being asked to undertake commissions. One student has already sold a substantial glass and metal outdoor sculpture to the Manager of the Local National Trust Properties. The show consists of a wonderful variety of pieces, inspired by the location and made from ceramics, glass, precious and non-precious metals to create Jewellery and Sculptures. Organised by Jennifer Barker, one of the academic members of staff, the Exhibition will be open over the Easter holidays. Entry is free to Glyndwr staff and Art and Design based students; just inform staff at the ticket office of your affiliation with Glyndwr.

With Cerys Alonso as its Head, the Applied Arts team run a successful department with an excellent reputation throughout the United Kingdom for being one of the leading Applied Arts Degrees. The team put their success down to all of the staff being active practitioners themselves, who undertake many prestigious commissions. Most of the Staff have thriving businesses external to the University and so have their finger on the pulse of the professional future of their students.

Jennifer Barker organised the Exhibition with huge help from Brian Duffy, Julie Mellor and Stephanie Brown. All of the staff are very proud of the high standard of the work the Students have produced.

Applied Arts staff member Wayne Clarke is currently organising the final year students’ stand for the New Designers show in London at the end of June. The department is a constant hive of activity; consistently producing wonderful experiences for its students.Image,42711,en url-1 url
