The Plymouth College of Art ‘Principal’s Award for Enterprise’, sponsored by Thinq Tanq and Insitju, is awarded to students graduating from their final year of studying at Plymouth College of Art. Judged to be demonstrating excellence in the creativity and execution of their work, this year the accolade has been awarded to Renovat Moody, Susan Holmes, Katherine Howes, Alice and Beth Antliff. As a collective, the students are looking to establish an open studio for emerging creatives.
Beth Antliff commented, “We envision a creative hub with a collaborative and supportive atmosphere, offering a range of facilities including; hot glass, warm glass, cold working, mould making, throwing, kiln firing and more.
We aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible aspiring to be responsible makers, recycling as much material as possible, reducing our environmental impact.”
This award has been developed with the aim to allow emerging artists the opportunity to further progress their practice with the support of an established industry sponsor. The winners receive access to studio space provided by award sponsor Thinq Tanq and money to put towards their overall project, allowing them the opportunity to showcase their work to a wider audience and further their engagement with the artistic community.
With a broad range of mediums, both modern and traditional, taught across the college, including film, photography, fine art installation, fashion design, game arts, illustration, glassworks, ceramics, animation, 3D printing and much more, Plymouth College of Art produces a community of global thinkers, ready to make their mark on the world.
Featuring world class facilities such as FabLab Plymouth and the £8 million dedicated crafts workshops for ceramics, glass and metal work, the college is dedicated to nurturing the freshest creative and most innovative talent.
