Degree Show 2021

Degree Show 2021

Tues 29 June - Sun 25 July

We are pleased to present the School’s annual Degree Show celebrating the two-year journey of our twelve MA graduates and the completed research project of our graduating doctoral student.

This year, our Degree Show is both online and in person, and once again features work completed under highly challenging circumstances.

Last June 2020, due to the pandemic, our degree show moved completely online. Despite the disappointment of students being unable to exhibit their works to visitors in person, the event was a great success, unexpectedly enjoyable as it meant viewers from far and wide could 'attend'. This year the online show returns, offering our graduating students the opportunity to display their work to friends, family and all those interested in the traditional arts, wherever they are in the world. Over the past year our students have persevered with their post-graduate programmes, moving from online to in-person tuition and back again as the Covid landscape shifted, often without warning. They have met challenges and obstacles with courage and grace, and the work you see is a result of their passion, determination and commitment to the traditional arts.

From countries in Europe to the Middle East, China, the United States, Taiwan, India, and Brazil our MA students have explored traditions such as: Persian miniature painting, Christian-inspired painting, geometric ceramic tiles, Islamic illumination, South Indian Tanjore painting, Chinese indigo textiles, Mughal-inspired painting, Chinese landscape and plein-air painting and nature-inspired illustrations. The PhD project considered the relationship between spiritual and professional architectural practice in the conversion of a Victorian shopfront into a centre for study, prayer and community.

After visiting the exhibition on the School’s website, we encourage you to contact the students via the links provided to purchase and commission work directly.
