Abstract

Collaboration with a local business man Matthew Elliot and the Student Union allowed the opportunity for the first serious pop up shop opportunity for Students. Students and Artist in Residence from the School of Craft and Design set up, manned and exhibited through a prime retail space in Farnham Craft Town, promoting the university, the courses and themselves as serious makers and practitioners in the craft industries.

Feedback from the event from the Farnham Herald, Town Council and the local community was excellent. Students had a great experience, working together, learning and developing ideas about curating, display, costing and selling. Success was shown through the profits the students received as well as follow up exhibitions’ students had and are still undertaking. The Student Union and retail outlet owner was pleased with the pilot, they have continued to work together allowing students, courses and staff to exhibit and experiment with the space. The relationship is to continue until the outlet is rented out on a permanent basis to a new tenant.
