Title of Work
An Unexpected Tea Party
The theme to my degree show work is 'The Best of Being British'. I’ve been inspired by British culture and formalities, anthropomorphism and beautiful constructed words. The majority of my project was based around the UK’s new found obsession with vintage tea parties. I’ve taken this obsession, and developed it into a luxury zine of baking recipes especially for a tea party. The illustrations alongside these are of British woodland creatures having a party. They highlight the chaos at an event that should be prim and proper, to show anarchy, and how it has changed into a more modern mischievous occasion.
