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.

Still Buzzing

So I have lots of good news...
I've been selected to go to New Designers and I am so excited for the opportunities I might gain and the fact I’m going to London for a week!!

I'm also entered for the dissertation prize so fingers crossed for that, which I’ll find out about at the Degree Show night on the 9th of June.

My Professional Studies marks are back and (provided the external examiner is happy with the way it has been graded) I’m really happy with my marks.

And my hand in is over- which means I can have a little relief before the Degree Show.

As for design I've been getting on with a lot of the little projects I have started over the past few years, I am continuing with my quilting project, i.e. teaching myself how to create a quilt and creating one suitable for a double bed, and have been working on designs for a stained glass window for my house, researching glass and coming up with appropriate designs suitable for the space. I’ve also started researching for my next self set project, looking at recent trends while I can still use the college facilities.

I've been really struggling to get on with printing my business cards out as the college computers are not suitable for uploading to the website I wanted to use, so despite having created some interesting and innovative designs in professional studies, I've not been able to do the same designs for the degree show cards :( But I have come up with some new designs I like.

I've got lots of good things going on at the moment, so I've got exciting things still to come in my life and its all go with my own little projects. I’ll just have to wait and see what opportunities come along! How exciting!!
