A PANEL of 'Business Dragons' have pitched in to run an industry day for Creative Arts students at Havering College.

The experts – who included a West End and Broadway theatre set designer, magazine illustrator, storyboard artist, leading graphic designer, interior stylist and costume designer – shared tips and advice with the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.

The event was organised by the college in conjunction with the Our Talented Future employment consultancy as one of a series of course related industry days being staged across the college.

A Q&A was followed by one-to-one mentoring sessions for students with panel members. The experts were:

  •  Mimi Milburn-Foster, a costume designer for film, TV and stills.
  •  Elizabeth Schuch, a film creative, designer and storyboard artist
  •  Graphic and Web Designer Aggie Dymarska
  •  Tim McQuillen-Wright whose theatre set designing credentials include Let It Be, Made in Dagenham and Let the Right One In.
  •  Freelance interior stylist Sally Cullen whose commissions include Real Homes magazine and projects for John Lewis and Harrods.
  •  Illustrator and trainee tattoo artist Jamie Mattocks

BTEC Level 3 Art & Design student Chloe Stockwell, 16, from Hornchurch, said: "I hope to go into theatre design, hopefully through an apprenticeship. The industry day was a really helpful session and has given me a lot more idea about what I need to do."

Our Talented Future co-founder Adam Watling, who chaired the Q&A session, said: "We are very grateful to our panellists. They are all inspirational individuals who have achieved a lot in the fields that these students will one day be working in."

Havering College is a leading provider of Creative Arts education and offers a wide range of courses in Art & Design, Fashion, Graphic Design, Media, Music, Performing Arts and Photography, starting from Level 1 to HNC, HND and Degree.
