Description

For this Symposium, Ambiguous Implements' artists Nuala Clooney and Rachael Colley will host a symposium exploring the theme of Rethinking Domestic Design. The event brings together recent graduates from the fields of jewellery, metal work and ceramics to discuss the development of their practice post-education. Rob Anderson, Rosie Deegan, Kate Haywood and Abbie Williams will present their current projects whilst design consultant Melody Vaughan will talk about strategies for developing and sustaining emerging practices.
