DIMENSIONS the Schools Show

2017 was the inaugural year of DIMENSIONS, it′s precursor, DesignED. saw some excellent examples of Design and Technology work, but now the show has evolved to include Art and Design as well as all phases of education.


DIMENSIONS is a celebration of Art, Craft, Design and Technology Education in schools. The exhibition is a showcase of the very best work produced in these subjects. Hosted by the Sheffield Institute of Arts in 2017, young people can see a direct link between the subjects studied in school and the Higher Education routes which might lead them to a creative career.

The show was hosted in the Head Post Office Gallery. Over 100 people attended the opening with prizes being awarded to truly exceptional young people creating and making high quality pieces of work. During the evening guests were treated to canapés from our ′ Create a Canapé ′ competition finalists. This is a region-wide competition open to year 10 and above where pupils design and enter their recipes; if short-listed pupils get to make them in our specialists kitchens overseen by professional chefs.

12 schools were involved in DIMENSIONS 2017 and work spanned KS3 to KS5 Design & Technology and Art & Design.
