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.

Print Development and Final Designs

So I've been working dead hard this week- starting on Monday by printing my final samples for my first design...

My creative desk! Well at least its messy with work not food!

Final Design One- I love the colours in these designs- especially the foiling- it went exactly to plan- which was a happy surprise.

Final Design Two- With fluffy horses- I do love it- but I think my other two samples are stronger.

So onward with the next set of work and into the print rooms. 

I have been coming up with fabric developments for design two to be posted when I find time.


  1. Your designs are brilliant ......so professional..........and you want to teach?!!!!!!! :-)

  2. Well yes I do want to go on to teach, but in some ways I think it was fate that I didn't get on to teacher training this year and it means that I can have the opportunity to pursue surface design, as a career first (which I definitely want to, and am glad I get the opportunity to do now).

    And thank you, it's really nice to know that my work is liked :)

  3. Is that a picture of anni you have in your work bay :) x
