Make Your Own Masters

Unable to afford the fees to undertake a postgraduate degree in design, Stacie Woolsey decided to set up her own master’s programme.

She approached four designers whom she admired – Seetal Solanki, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, Thomas Thwaites and Room Y – and asked them to send her a brief to respond to. She then sourced studio space and mentorship.

Completing her master’s in 18 months, she has since opened the project to ten new learners. On display here are some of the objects she made as part of her own degree, as well as feedback from Make Your Own Masters alumni.
