2014 was a fantastic year for building up the workshops and tuition side of Wallop. I began teaching workshops four times a week to young adult students with learning disabilities over at POST19 in Farnham and these have gone from strength to strength. I'm very pleased to be continuing these workshops throughout 2015 and we have a busy year ahead on both the Graphic Design and Art courses! Watch this space for more projects and galleries as we progress though the term.
At the end of 2014 I also was thrilled to begin a new working connection with Alton College, a fantastic further education college for 16 - 18 year olds based here in Hampshire. I have already completed several graphic design projects for them, including community education leaflets, flyers and promotional materials. We have collaborated on bus stop poster campaigns and programmes of events and have many exciting projects in the pipeline for the coming weeks and months. I'm very excited about the prospect of continuing to work with the college to create a whole range of vibrant, creative projects.
Alongside Alton College, another welcome new client is WessexArts - a new centre and theatre for the arts and entertainments community, situated on the college site. Several projects are already underway for Wessex Arts including their Spring programme of events, poster and banner advertising and various specific show flyers and leaflets. I am particularly looking forward to working on more of the same for this lovely new client as the range and diversity of each commission is fantastic.
So a Happy New Year! Roll on 2015 and all the exciting new challenges it brings with it!
