Hidden featuring Jonna Saarinen

HIDDEN is an exhibition of work by technical staff at the Royal College of Art.

The technicians have a wealth of knowledge and are a hidden talent at the RCA and this is a celebration of some of their most innovative creative work. The week-long exhibition will be showcasing the work from over 40 technicians across the College, including an exciting mix of jewellery and textile design, painting and sculptures, as well as handmade bespoke cars and interactive virtual reality work.

Finnish textile designer Jonna Saarinen graduated from the RCA in 2011 and works as a printed textile technician in the Textiles department at the College. Within her personal practice Saarinen specialises in screen-printed textiles and brightly coloured kitchenware. Her beautifully handcrafted work explores the natural beauty of Nordic nature and the nostalgia of growing up on the Finnish Archipelago. Saarinen has worked with a number of household names including The Guardian, Thorsten van Elten, Etsy, Nokia and Oilily. Recently her stunningly renovated home was featured in the Observer, Mollie Makes and the South London Journal. Saarinen will be showcasing some exciting new work, including large-scale prints and drawings.
