The School of Material's Work-in-progress (WIP) show gives you the chance to see into the creative process of some of the world's most exciting up and coming designers in Ceramics & Glass, Jewellery & Metal, Fashion Menswear, Fashion Womenswear and Textiles.


Traditional techniques and materials are stretched to and beyond their limits with students examining the scientific exploration of new materials as well as the cross-fertilisation of existing and new technologies.

The WIP will highlight the School's rigorous policy of experimentation, with new forms, colours and techniques on show. The exhibition is a tantalising chance to see the shape of things to come in advance of the graduation show in June. 

Ceramics & Glass and Jewellery & Metal will be showing work in the setting of their studios, workshops and studios in the Woo Building, Battersea. 

Textiles will be hosting a collective studio showcase in the 7th floor project space, Darwin Building, Kensington. A series of Studio Talks will take place at 12 noon, 2pm and 4pm on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday to which all visitors are welcome.

These are excellent opportunities to find potential collaborations with students from the Programme and to learn more about how we approach the discipline.

Fashion will be hosting Talk Live: a student-led discussion, in their studios in Kensington on Saturday 21 January, from 2pm.
