Fragment

Fragment are the 2020 Graduates of NWSLC - Hinckley Campus who have overcome the difficulties presented by COVID-19 and continued their studies to complete their BA Honours Degree

"Fragment are a collective of practitioners working with various methods and materials, Fragment aptly describes our group. Each of us resembles a fragment of light, that comes together to form something more – just like fragments of light form a rainbow, each of us form the collective that makes up our online exhibition."

"The exhibition spans themes relating to: the pandemic; environmental issues; family; identity; memories, and loss. We are utilising a wide variety of techniques including: hand-printed textiles, sculpture, digital paintings, traditional paintings, book-making and embroidery."

Hygieia

By Maxine Dunkley Instagram @maxinedunkley.art Medium: Sculpture

"Hygieia, the Greek Goddess of health and well being. She is represented throughout history in paintings and sculptures and is recognisable by her snake and cup. For me, she became the perfect symbol of our times, during the recent Coronavirus Pandemic and Lockdown."

Hygieia

"In times past, people who had nothing would give locks of their hair as an offering/gift to the Goddess Hygieia. They would offer prayers of supplication for their salvation. Desperate pleas for desperate times. Times when we feel powerless and look beyond ourselves for help."

Prayer To Hygieia

Hygieia, gracious goddess whose noble heart
and healing hands are well known to all.
Kindly giver of strength and hearty good health to mankind.
I pray to you, help me to tend my body and mind
with care and constancy.

Prayer To Hygieia continued

Grant me the discipline to moderate my vices,
to modify my habits, to exercise wisdom in my choice of fare, my work and my rest.
May I find my way to wellness and wholeness,
May I become one who seeks the good. May I be fit to do the work of my life.
Hygieia, who helps those the most who help themselves, goddess, grant me the resolve to succeed.

Cushion in Blush

By Ellie York Instagram @ellieyorkdesign Medium: Textile

"For my Final Major Project I have created a bespoke, hand-printed textile collection with the intention of educating and informing people of the declining population of UK Bees and Pollinators. Inspired by the work of 19th century textile designer William Morris, the design utilises the natural forms of flora that are beneficial in supporting habitats for Bees and Pollinators."

Cushion in Lilac

By Ellie York https://ellieyorkdesign.myportfolio.com/ Medium: Textile

Traditional Lino printing and sewing techniques have been utilised to create a range of homeware products in varying colourways. The colour scheme for the range is inspired by the flowers that construct it; including delicate lilacs and bold yellows. The materials used to create the products, such as 100% organic cotton and non-toxic inks, were chosen due to their reduced impact on the environment.

Tangible Memories

By Hannah Brown Medium: Embroidery, Silk Organza

"My Final Major Project ‘Tangible Memories’ pins down the tangible remains we as humans leave behind once we’re gone, and the impact these tangible items have on those we leave behind. It’s a deeply personal project based on my dad, who passed away over ten years ago. I’ve worked with physical items belonging to my dad, handwritten notes and photographs, with the intention of creating something more permanent."

A photo of 'Tangible Memories' by Hannah Brown

Tangible Memories

By Hannah Brown Medium: Embroidery, Silk Organza

"My dad wrote his everyday requests, fears and feelings in many notebooks, and I’ve translated his handwriting into hand-stitched embroidery on silk organza. The outcome serves as a memorial piece and a tribute to human life, to the life of my dad. It’s a testament to his character and his strength, leaving an impression of the person he was"

Tangible Memories

By Hannah Brown Medium: Embroidery, Silk Organza
