From the graphics and structures found within urban environments to the repetitive patterns that construct organic material at a cellular level, the selected designer-makers have drawn on a variety of sources to create exciting geometric designs in jewellery, ceramics, and textiles. The range of new, bright, and bold designs start at just TBC, making them perfect for summer and great for those seeking out more original gifts and accessories for the wedding season.

RBSA Next Wave 2018
- 3 — 22 September 2018
The Next Wave project began in 2014 as an exciting new venture for the RBSA. The project aimed to stage an exhibition of work by emerging and early-career artists that would add to the variety of the RBSA Gallery’s exhibition programme. It also aimed to support and promote the exhibitors to help them develop their career in the arts sector. Following the success of Next Wave 2014, the RBSA made it a biennial project so that the aims could be developed and continued.
