Tammy Davies, who will be exhibiting her work in fashion, said: “Collaborating with makers from other disciplines has been a great experience, and I’m really looking forward to people seeing the work.”

Rachel Thomas, who is studying Textiles/Multi-discipline will be showing work featuring a collage of weaves, knits and waste materials on painted canvas and textiles student Nancy Simmons, will be showing naturally dyed and printed knits, derived from the Pembrokeshire coast and the Preseli mountains.

Pauline Hoffman will be showing ceramics and jewellery, Deryn May will be exhibiting ceramics and experimental jewellery, Efa Pennington will be showing work in ceramics and macrame, and Lucy Warry will be exhibiting work in ceramics and jewellery.

Lucy said: “It’s nerve wracking, but very exciting to be showing my work for the first time – it’s brilliant that our degree courses take us through the process of organising an exhibition from beginning to end. I think it’s been an invaluable experience and lots of fun along the way.”

Jewellery designer Kef Shimidzu said: “It has been great working with this wonderful team. I am really excited about exposing this eclectic mix to the public.”
