Hello, I'm Tanya Ventress a current student from Cleveland College of Art and Design in Hartlepool (originally from York). I'm studying BA (Hons) Textiles and Surface Design and I'm currently in the Madness of third year. I have ambitions of a teaching career but at the moment I'm hoping to persue my career of Surface Design.

Time time time

Third year is absolute madness!! With the project of trying to get 2 screen changes and with only one week extra to the second years projects when we did half as much it is absolute insanity. The print rooms are manic as both years have the same deadline, and my screens are large and take up a lot of space. I officially plan not to ever use a large screen if I go on to do this in later life.

And yet I'm in ore and inspired by everyone around me, with some people doing up to 6 screen changes for their designs, I'm worrying all the more. I'm beginning to find time management more fun as it goes on as I can then step back and decide what to do next as well as spending time calming myself.

Images of some of my work so far!

First Post (well kind of)

So I have just realised I have made the very silly mistake of registering the wrong email to my web address this is my second attempt at a blog.

This is the start of my third year doing BA (hons) Textiles and Surface Design and I am eager to progress this year.

My name is Tanya Ventress and the spirit of my minor project is of adventure.
The theme however is geometric florals and iridescent fish.

It is already becoming a challenging year fast and it is confirming my opinion that the education system should be better spread over the year, i.e. there is no need for it to be this stress full!

Anyway this up and coming week will hopefully be the start of my print exploration and i will post as it goes!
