The art of textiles

TALENTED college students are putting their carefully-crafted work on display.

Students graduating from the BA textiles and surface design degree at Cleveland College of Art and Design are preparing their exhibition.

Their work is going up on Thursday in Hartlepool Art Gallery, just over the road from the college’s campus in Church Square.

The colourful items can be seen for free until Saturday, June 18.

A college spokesman said: “The work on display ranges from innovative surface design and designer made products, fashion fabrics and accessories, to contemporary interior furnishing designs for fabrics and wallpapers.

“Students will also exhibit textile artwork, drawings and sketchbooks.”

The gallery is open from 10am to 5pm from Tuesday to Saturday and is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
