For those looking for something a bit different in the gift department this Christmas, Design to Sell could be the answer.

Design to Sell is a collaboration between Extended Diploma Art, Design, Fashion, Craft and Textile students in their second year of study at Plymouth College of Art.

For this unique project students, design, promote and sell their own work in a pop-up shop, gaining real-world experience as the manager and director of their own business. Integrity through design enables students to produce unique bespoke pieces, making the event popular with local retailers who are looking for original hand-made christmas presents.  

“Professionalism is key to this project and opens the door to employability within the competitive creative industries. This project has achieved The Beacon Award for its contribution towards copyright and integrity in design,” says Tweeny Van Mierlo, Course Leader for the Extended Diploma in Art and Design.

Students gain creative entrepreneurial skills as part of their professional practice, and also earn some financial reward from their work as designer-makers.
