CMD Dolgellau student selected for Origins Creatives 2022

Ffion Pugh, studying on the UAL L3 Diploma in Art and Design at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, Dolgellau, had work selected out of 500 entries from colleges nationwide. Ffion's Lockdown posters really stood out, and it was also the only bilingual work on show.

After ther prolonged period of stasis and isolation due to the pandemic, people of all ages and backgrounds need opportunities to re-engage with learning and sharing their ideas and experiences with wider audiences. The UAL ORIGINS CREATIVES Exhibition provides such an opportunity, offering over 150 students from across the country the chance to present their work publicly.

Martin Evans, head of the Art and Design Dep at Dolgellau said

“It was a really wonderful evening at the Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London, on 21st July. So nice to be a part of something so joyous to celebrate the creativity of young artists and designers.

All of the creative work was presented so professionally, and there were also encouraging words from guest speakers from the creative industries, especially Grayson Perry.”

Ffion's work can be viewed amongst a diverse range of painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, fashion, graphics and more on the Origins Creatives online gallery at:
