The students and staff of Bangor’s BSc Product Design course have been working with the contemporary art gallery MOSTYN, located in Llandudno, to create a range of jewellery items suitable for the gallery’s shop. The high-quality jewellery is currently on sale at the shop. The students took inspiration for the location and countryside as their inspiration for the jewellery pieces.
Katie Roberts, a Product Design Lecturer at Bangor University, said that “Experience is vital in any field, and opportunities to work with companies and organisations who are passionate about developing the next generation of designers and creative thinkers are priceless, so this project has been a great asset for these students. We place great emphasis on providing real creative challenges for our students.”
Barry Morris of Mostyn said that “It was fascinating to see how each student approached the brief and developed their jewellery range to suit our visitors needs”. One of the students, Thomas Mott, has had his work put on display. He said “It’s awesome to know that my work is already getting out there and I can’t wait to see where else I can go”.
MOSTYN is a registered UK charity and all income made by the shop and gallery is invested into MOSTYN’s exhibition, learning and engagement programme.
