Student Profile

Yawen Zhang

“ During my time here I’ve learned to develop my ideas not only through thinking, but making too. Creating a lot of pieces helped me develop new ideas and ways of working. I learnt to have courage to use new materials, try new techniques and explore deeper when I find something interesting. I’ve learnt how to manipulate materials in new, innovative ways.
