A Specialist Wool Shop and Needlecraft Centre. Judy Cinnamond (printed textile student in the early 1960s) remembers drawing being a large part of every course, ‘figure drawing, plant drawing … Roman lettering … it was quite a classical art education.’ 38 With the introduction of grants in 1962 and the expansion of further education, full-time study had become the norm in Belfast and the accommodation on the top floor of the Technical College had become critically inadequate.
