Today we bring you the very freshest and shiniest of our alumni postings – these guys are some of our newly minted class of 2015 (& friends). We’re always proud at BATD of our emerging textile designers establishing their creative practice right from the start, with collaborative exhibitions and pop ups almost the minute they leave our doors, and this group is no exception.
Great Lengths is the (pun intended) title of both the collective, and their first exhibition, open to the public from Wednesday 9th – Saturday 12th December, at OkLa @ The Compound Interest, 15-25 Keele St, Collingwood.
Let’s start with their own introduction:
We are a collective of emerging textile designers, graduates of the BA Textile Design program at RMIT Melbourne, showcasing selected works across print, knit, weave and experimental textiles.
Explore with us a celebration of artisanship and the diverse application of textile practice and design. Our work spans fashion, homewares, emerging technologies, the theatrical and the conceptual.
Great Lengths is a measure of our collaborative effort, our hard work and determination. We go to great lengths to produce works of quality, beauty and integrity.
Here’s all the key info to help you discover them in person, and online:
