Over the next few weeks things are going to be pretty hectic. This week is New Designers, where a small portion of The Blood Bag Project will be on show to the thousands of visitors as part of the University of Huddersfield’s Textiles Graduate stand. I am very honoured to have been selected to take part. This means I won’t have any internet access all week whilst in London for the show.
When I return, I will be relocating! I’m not entirely sure of my internet situation at my new home just yet, so again, I may be unable to access the internet for some time until it has been set up.
My relocation also means that the posting address for blood bags has been put on hold. However, do not panic! This does not been The Blood Bag Project has came to an end - Just that it is on hiatus for a few weeks until I get back up and running!
Thank you for your patience. If you do want to contact me, do not hesitate to send me a message via tumblr, facebook, twitter, or the contact page on the website! I will try to get back to you ASAP!
I visited the art & design graduate show at the University of Huddersfield yesterday (I'll be starting my final year on the textile design course in september) and just wanted to say that all of the bags looked great! The Blood Bag Project is such a big achievement, I hope you're very proud! x x
Thank You! I am very proud, the reponse to the project has been amazing, and it is very rewarding to do! I’m glad you enjoyed the show! Good Luck in your final year, it’s the hardest one, but the best one!
Exciting day today! I have been selected to show work at New Designers in London in a few weeks - This is a great advertising opportunity for The Blood Bag Project! And tonight is the preview evening for the degree show!
Don’t forget that this Sunday you can come along to a FREE workshop to make your own blood bag - all materials supplied! You can also see the 90 blood bags we have so far on display while your there! Please click here for exhibition and workshop info :)
Wix have changed the format of their URLs. This means the new website link is ‘http://leighlalovesyou.wix.com/thebloodbagproject’, but you can still access the site through the old one, which will redirect you :)
On the template and specifications, the deadline for bag submissions for the current address was the 31st May. This has now been extended for bags to be received by the 21tst June. If you do not think you bag will reach the address by then, do not panic! The new confirmed address will be added on this date. If you want to mail a bag from outside of the UK, please email me for a different address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
