New designers is underway and buzzing with fresh ideas
New Designers presents an unmissable opportunity to buy new products for your store or home, get inspired by fresh ideas and discover new design talent to commission or recruit.
Every year over 3,000 of the most promising graduate talents from Britain’s leading design courses exhibit. The show features everything from textiles and jewellery to product design and illustration and takes place at the spectacular Business Design Centre in London, the world’s capital of design.
Nowhere else is it possible to see such innovation and creativity across all disciplines, and the content is completely new every year.
Are stand has a selection of jewellery, textiles , and mix media pieces
I am displaying my textile collection in response to the chemicals in the countryside which I exhibited for my Final Major Project. However this time I have changed my display to fit in better with the show and displayed my carrots on a shelve so they are easier to view and show my work as art pieces , than my Craftivist act. I have also had made a fantastic rail which has a gorgeous piece of wood attached to fit in with the natural theme.
To add to my display and show my passion with painted furniture , I have painted in Annie Sloan paint ! and upholstered in a print from my collection an old sewing stool.
The show is going well and my carrots are getting some great response the show runs until Saturday so please come and visit JC30!

At The Annie Sloan Shop I have been asked to curate a window!
So I have been thinking of key themes or designers I could use as inspiration. I have decided to use William Morris because his running theme of flora and fauna and colour palette would link in well with the shop and also the new stencil collection. Which was launched this month! Morris has been a key influence in my work over the years. I love the techniques and qualities of his work and have a personal connection, having worked at Kelmscott Manor, his country home for 5 years. His work is made up of line drawings, which are then repeated or mirrored to create sophisticated complex designs. I wanted to use one of Morris’s famous quotes as a vocal point. I have decided to use ‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful’. I have chosen this quote because I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make something ugly but useful, look beautiful using the stencils. I thought of different ideas covering, bins, irons, and radiators in different patterns. Then I started focusing more on the bin idea as I believed it to be the most undesirable. I later realised how recycling bins could look really effective, and can help promote being more green because they will look more desirable!
So what do you think ?
I have used the flora and fauna stencils to create a busy pattern including different layers, created using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint mixes to produce a William Morris colour palette.
