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.

Its been a while...

I know it’s been a while but since I left university things seem to have taken a more zigzag course than expected so I'll let you know how a few of my little projects are going.

Firstly since I finished at university I attended New Designers which was great fun and very exciting.

Then I completed an Internship at Timorous Beasties in Glasgow where I worked as a print assistant and a general design assistant getting the pictures ready for the new website. I really enjoyed my experience there and a Big Thanks to the Timorous Beasties studio people for making me feel so welcome and for giving me such a great opportunity.
Glasgow School of Art
I also managed to have a great time around Glasgow and got to go round the Glasgow School of Art on an open day. It was amazing!!

I created a doorstop in the shape of a vintage teapot from my very own patterns…


And then made some gifts for Christmas–due to what I felt like was a lack of any decent soft toys of the minions from Despicable Me, I created my own from scratch:

I also sent cards that were also scented lavender cushions:

And made a notebook cover for the Secret Santa at my Guide group…

 So all in all a busy 2011... So onto 2012!!
