Year 1 A Level Textile Designers started their course in September and have just completed their first project 'all about paper'. Each student worked from the same design brief to complete a hand bound sketchbook, design sheets and a half garment made from paper. Ideas developed taking inspiration from images of paper garments found on Google and Pinterest. These young designers were asked to manipulate paper in response to techniques and technical terms choosing which types of paper they would each upcycle. Papers were folded, curled, creased, scrunched, woven, sewn and gathered. Design ideas were tried, sketched and photographed on the mannequins before final designs were constructed. The students also had the opportunity to visit Unit 12, a gallery and studio space, owned and curated by Jennifer Collier. Jennifer Collier's work is made from paper which she exhibits and sells internationally. It was such a fantastic experience to meet Jennifer and see her making.

The students also had help from former students of NULC who have gone onto have successful careers: Tom Perry, a letter smith from PezandPencil of Stoke on Trent, Anthony Owen, the Creative Director at Delineo in Manchester and Jon Paul Green, lead Graphic Designer at Q Railing in Stoke on Trent. All three ex-students completed the Level 3 ED Graphics Design & Interactive Media course and Ant and Jon also completed a level 2 course in Art & Design prior to that.
