We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Prototypes

After the initial designing process, the inmates made prototypes from paper and other fabrics. This encouraged the inmates to follow the manufacturing process from start to finish.

Donated fabrics

Much of the fabric used was either donated by private organisations, or manufactured by Sabarmati Central Prison, India. One of the fabrics donated has a retail price of £900 per meter.

Explanations

Each bag was displayed with a label identifying its designer, and also hinted at a name for the model – much like high-street products (Ikea’s ‘Billy’ bookcase, or Louis Vuitton’s ‘Alma’ handbag).

Theft proof

The labels provided information about the design inspiration and features of the bag, including the ways that the bag was designed against theft.

Fasionistas

The finish products as modelled by visitors to the exhibition: Central St Martin’s Art College are aiming to continue the project by designing and creating sellable products to purchase online.

Huge clustered pillars of Blue Purbeck Marble support the famous Gothic vaulting of Exeter Cathedral. A stratigraphy of other Purbeck stones can be found reconstructed throughout the floor: Grub, Blue Bit, New Vein, Leining Vein. Names echo a quarrying history, and a unique knowledge of stone.
