An Ilford artist whose work you can pick up, wear or even walk around with, will be showcasing her final year project in an exhibition at the weekend.

Blandine Martin, 47, has been working on several different pieces of mixed media work since she was selected for her MA course last year, and the French-born artist who lives in Carrington Gardens said that her exhibition is open to be interpreted by whoever comes to see it.

The exhibition is the end of year show for TOMA students, which is an art education model set up in 2015 outside of the traditional art school by Emma Edmondson.

It is artist run and designed to fit the everyday lives of contemporary artists.

The exhibition reflects on the time spent collaborating, making, learning and discourse within a community outside of the traditional art school institution.

It will take place at Metal at Chalkwell Hall, Chalkwell Avenue in Southend on Sea from 3pm-5pm on Saturday (September 15).
