Student Snapshots: Sarah Kadrnka, BA Illustration student


Sarah Kadrnka, a BA Illustration student, chose two watercolours by Silver Studio designer, Winifred Mold, as the theme of her video.

I chose my objects because I really loved the composition and style of the pieces. Being an avid watercolour user myself, I was drawn to Winifred Mold’s pieces. I found this project fun. I enjoyed exploring the various boxes in MoDA and discovering a wide variety of items.

Sarah’s video took the form of a short documentary about Winifred Mold and the other female designers at the Silver Studio.

Winifred Mold joined the Silver Studio in 1912, and was the first female designer to be employed there

Sarah’s video was part of a 2017 pilot project called Student Snapshots

This project provided current Middlesex University students with the opportunity to develop their employability skills by making a short video about MoDA’s collections.

Students were given control over the style of the video, and were able to choose from the tens of thousands of objects in MoDA’s collections.
