past event: A Sneak Peek at our Student Day - Wednesday 9th October
To find out about our current events please refer to our events page.
This year's Cass Art Student Day is now less than a week away! On Wednesday 9th October, we open the doors of our flagship Islington store to students with 15% off EVERYTHING in store, and goody bags stuffed with artist quality materials worth over £50 with any purchase of £10 or more. But at our Student Days it is often all about the atmosphere (from 9am until 10pm) with live DJs spinning the decks while you shop, and this year we have found some fantastic freebies through friends of Cass Art. Here we give you a sneak peek into some of the treats in store...
FRAE was the vision of best friends Don and Martyn, who met at University in Scotland. They stumbled across the concept of frozen yoghurt in New York and fell in love with the healthy, refreshing snack. They then set out on a quest to source the best real yoghurt from farms across the UK. FRAE means "from" in old Scots, which links nicely to the place where Don and Martyn met but also to their commitment to sourcing the best ingredients.
Don Murray, Head of Creative at FRAE, said 'Our customers love creating the perfect frozen yogurt at FRAE, with all our yogurt flavours and toppings being beautifully sourced and crafted. Our natural yogurt on its own, "naked" as we like to call it, is like a blank canvas, and our toppings are like the fresh palette used to paint it. It's this love of creativity at FRAE which is so relevant to our fantastic partnership with Cass Art!'
Have you tried popcorn done properly? You'll be spoilt for choice with the flavours out in force on Cass Art Student Day. PROPERCORN are supporting our day with tasting bags of Sweet & Salty, Lightly Sea Salted, Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sun-Dried Tomato, and (our favourite) Sour Cream & Chive.
Cassandra, founder of PROPERCORN, is looking forward to being involved: 'Since I launched PROPERCORN, we have always used bits and pieces from Cass Art to make sure our show and festival stands are done properly - with a little practical, creativity. Championing the arts is really important to us - our packs are illustrated by the amazing Zoë More O'Ferrall - and I'm really excited to share all our flavours with the next generation of creators to celebrate the start of a new year at uni.'
Aesthetica Magazine is one of Cass Art's favourite publications. Not only will you go home with a free copy of the October issue on Student Day, but you may be picked at random to win one of two annual Aesthetica subscriptions up for grabs.
Rebecca Bowery from Aesthetica gave us an insight into what to expect from your free October issue: 'Inside every copy of Aesthetica we combine dynamic content, critical debate and stunning visuals to report on the latest news in contemporary art and culture, both in the
