The Cast Exhibition

The cast exhibited works produced during a 2 week workshop conducted during the summer of 2012. It was the bridging across three disciplines- architecture, textiles and glass, all part of the recently merged University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art. Inspired by the remains of St Peter’s Seminary, Cardross, Scotland, this transpired as finding the spirit and potential in the seemingly overlooked, subsequently, creating an open playing field for experimentation, exchange and development; within and beyond the participant’s respective disciplines. Ultimately, stripping away the hierarchy of ‘the expert’ and ‘the novice’ within the collaborative triangle and what remained was something more concrete.
