Last November the School of Art staged a show featuring the domestic tea towel.
We had a fascinating time looking at design styles in communication through drawing and the written word.
The tea towel, as the focal point of the show, is a creative and amusing way to look at communication. The exhibition draws the viewers attention to the idea that a practical but necessary item can also be a work of art, a form of advertising, an instructional guide and by default a celebration of all things British.

The 2nd yr students helped out serving tea and offering homemade cake a the private view.
