Katy Tromans’ will exhibit her work at Birmingham City University’s One Year On alumni show.

The 3D print and CAD technician at Weston Beamor is set to return to BCU, where she trained, for the exhibition.

Her latest Alice in Wonderland-themed work will go on display in the One Year On alumni exhibition being staged by BCU at its Park Side Gallery from 12-30 of June.


In addition to her work at Weston Beamor, Tromans is a prize-winning silversmith recently awarded a Gold Medal for her CAD presentation in the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards.

“I shall use the exhibition to showcase the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ piece for which I won the Goldsmiths’ Craft Award, together with two new collections entitled ‘Home is where the Bench Is’ – which is all about jewellery making, and ‘One Stitch at a Time” which is for sewing enthusiasts,” Tromans explained.

All of her collections feature a sculptural hero piece, a pocket watch inspired design for Alice in Wonderland, and a jewellers’ bench and a sewing scene with wearable dressmaking busts, for the two new collections

Tromans added: “I have had great support from the team at WB in bringing these very complicated and detailed designs to completion and I have learnt a huge amount in the process, knowledge which I can now hopefully pass onto our customers.”

Glen Day, head of business development at WB, is delighted by Katy’s ongoing success and said: “As a practising designer herself, Katy brings real understanding and empathy to her work with our customers.  We are all very proud of what she has achieved and of the part the company has played in helping her to develop her very distinctive collections.”
