Stu­dents in V&A her­itage chal­lenge

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - LOCAL NEWS -

The fi­nal leg of the Scot­tish De­sign Re­lay has been com­pleted in Aberdeen.

The event started in Dundee last year and also vis­ited Shet­land, Orkney, Go­van and Caith­ness.

Stu­dents from North East Scot­land Col­lege and Gray’s School of Art were chal­lenged to create a pro­to­type in­spired by their de­sign her­itage.

Over five days they worked with Aberdeen­shire de­signer Naomi Mcin­tosh and the V&A’s Leanne Fischler.

Ms Mcin­tosh said: “This was a project with­out a brief which is un­usual for de­sign stu­dents.”

The 16 stu­dents cre­ated a pa­per in­stal­la­tion com­pris­ing of 20 cylin­ders rep­re­sent­ing the ‘dandy rolls’ found in pa­per fac­to­ries such as Stoney­wood Mill.

The work will be dis­played on Septem­ber 15 when the V&A Mu­seum opens in Dundee.
