Museum and Study Collection
Judy Willcocks, Head of the Museum and Study Collection on its history
The Museum and Study Collection tells the story of Central Saint Martins’ rich history. The collection contains work produced by staff and students, a large art and design teaching collection, the British Artists’ Film and Video Collection, and some historical college records.
The teaching collection spans the 13th century to the present, and includes early printed books, prints, illuminated manuscripts, embroideries, 1920s German film posters, textiles and garments. We hold material created by CSM staff and students over the last one hundred years, and have collected from degree shows for the past two decades. The collection is open to everyone for inspiration and information.
Howard Asher's geometric designs inspire many students making new works in the digital age.
