Businesses, VIPs, students, staff and local artists are being invited to put their own stamp on the new multi-million pound Daventry Campus, as plans for a giant commemorative mural continue to take shape.
The mural, which will be made up of hundreds of individually designed tiles, will be in development at the official launch and open day of Northampton College’s new Daventry Campus on Tuesday, February 7.
College staff and students have already been designing their own tiles and guests at the launch event will be invited to get creative and play their part in the giant mural, which will take centre stage inside the new campus’ reception.
Sam Cope, Photography tutor and Visual Arts Technician, said: “Our students are already hard at work getting creative and we would love our guests and VIPs to also get involved. You don’t need to be a skilled artist or sculptor, everyone is simply free to create something that will become part of the College for many years to come.”
As part of their project called ‘Surfaces’ art and design students have been getting ready for the launch event by creating colourful tiles that incorporate different techniques and materials such as string, clay tools and bubble-wrap to create indents into the clay with different textures and feels.
