The Surface Pattern and Textiles Class of 2022 student experience is entirely unlike any year group before them. For the last three years they have felt the impact of the pandemic, and for most of this group that is every year of their time spent in university. Somehow, through this challenging time, we have packed it in, and they have more than brought it to the table.
This cohort will be characterised by some of the brilliant projects that they have taken part in – notably for 3rd years these are idott, Patternbank and Rolls Royce, with our MDes graduate taking part in the highly successful St Fagans and Orangebox projects. It has been inspiring for all of us that the design world has continued to support the next generation of talent through projects such as these and has shared our enthusiasm for the energy and freshness of the students’ ideas, skills and innovations.
Recently it has been our privilege to welcome back visitors to campus, and their awe at seeing our recent Rolls Royce x Your Vision exhibition and the Degree Show of 2022 was palpable. To have been able to celebrate creativity, designing and making together from our beloved Dynevor Campus is a fitting send off for the Class of 22.
These students understand the importance of design and the role it plays in our society. We are super proud of them. We are optimistic for the Class of 22 and hope to stay in touch as they continue to grow and navigate their new creative pastures.
