2017 commission, Richard Seager Annual Arts Award – d/l 01 April 2017

The Award is open to current students of specialist schools, further education colleges and universities, or those who have completed a further education course or graduated (up to Masters level) within the last 3 years.

The 2017 commission:

To design and manufacture a piece of free-standing furniture for a music room which will provide a focal point and practical storage for sheet music and music accessories. It may be made from any material or combination of materials, and should be innovative in its design, techniques employed or its use of materials. The materials used should be durable and strong, and preferably sustainably sourced or recycled.

Traditionally, music has been stored flat in drawers which contained as much music as could be easily picked up in one hand. The drawer front could incorporate a drop-down hinge to provide easy access and minimise damage to the contents. The music collection contains a mixture of individual sheets and small books, some of which is very old and fragile. The music collection is still growing, and is catalogued alphabetically by genre.
