Professional Practice, Plymouth College of Art, 07 June 2017

I recently gave a lecture at Plymouth College of Art for second and third year craft and surface pattern design students about how to engage with journalists and bloggers to gain coverage of their work. I also worked with the course leaders to select just nine students from the summer show whose work will appear at the London Design Fair in September. Part of my lecture was about how to make the most of this opportunity for those selected, while also ensuring those not selected were given advice they could use at other fairs or when not exhibiting. I have worked with Plymouth College of Art for three consequetive years to curate their London Design Fair stand. “Katie is fantastic to work with and always happy to share her immense knowledge of and enthusiasm for the design world.” – Laura Wasley, Plymouth College of Art
