‘Some Like it Hot’ showcases the research and practice of staff from the jewellery and textiles design programme at Central St Martins. The diverse range of work is curated through the perspective of temperatures required to fabricate materials hence the name of the exhibition ‘Some Like It Hot’. Designing and crafting textiles and jewellery encompasses transformative processes, which often need to be executed at specific temperatures. This exhibition explores the new ways of making jewellery, textiles and material and reveals the cutting edge techniques of today’s contemporary practice. Go check out their new decorative textile productions, abstract 3D layered fabrics and their hand-cut jewellery. I wonder if they’ll be any Monroe references…only one way to find out!
