Made By Hand 2016/Subject Research Level 6

For the past two years since joining Maker ive visited and helped with setting up in any way I can with Sarah James and Made By Hand. Made by hand without doubt is no easy event to pull of but is a fantastic day visit if ever around Cardiff at the end of October. Made…

The Medal

For my medal I wanted to make the medal send the message of sustainability which is ironic as a lot of material was used and in a sense wasted during the making process to the end result. Throughout the year feedback was having difficulty in helping me and im sure my tutors would agree the…

Bams Re pour

Given the bronze process didn’t entirely go to plan first time ive reproduced the medal and modified the pieces for exhibit. this has proved challenging as I don’t want the liquid and the malachite to get caught in any gaps this time im hoping to get the two moulds finished tomorrow and on a tree…

Discussion with Martyn (Make Your Mark)

After the discussion with Pip I discussed with Martyn my ideas for the outcome results and expectations of the Make Your Mark Project.

Work Experience Project Review

Despite not having the best of luck I really enjoyed my placement at Wild Creations and will hopefully be able to go back in the foreseeable future. I learnt many things while on placement such as when a heat gun drops dont try to grab it or you’ll regret it and you’re buggered due to…

Medal in The Bay

After setting up in the Bay For Touch Trust I popped over to Craft in the Bay to see the display for the medals. Most of Maker knows that I was really upset about the finalised piece and the fact that the ceramic shell was still stuck in after several sandblasts but it was reasonably…

Ideas for Make Your Mark

The Maker marketspace is expanding across the UK and abroad so finding your feet and where you sit on the market isn’t the easiest of tasks and once that hurdle is passed how do you sell yourself to potential buyers and potential employees now that’s the difficult Part. At the moment I have mind mapped…

What to make

For the make your mark project ive been asked along with visual data in the form of blog and sketchwork as examples to produce a series of outcomes that relate to my interests and individualities in the making process. At this stage im pretty sure im not the only one that is struggling to figure…
