Ghoulish designs displayed in York
29 October 2019
Ghost hunters in York can expect to find spooky surprises created by Leeds Beckett University students as part of this year’s Halloween celebrations in the city.
First year BA Product Design students at Leeds School of Arts have designed ghost lamps for the Great York Ghost Search, which is running during the week leading up to Halloween.
Among the designs is Apollo, created by Tierney Trafford, which can be spotted in the shop front of Abraham Moon on Stonegate.
The lamps are among 25 placed across the city, and have been produced by a variety of different artists and designers.
Those who complete the search and find all the ghosts will have the chance to win a special prize.
After Halloween, all the ghosts will be sold for charity via auction site Ebay, with proceeds split between The Family Holiday Association and The York Food Bank.
Robin Brinkworth, Senior Lecturer at Leeds School of Arts said: "I was really pleased to be asked to contribute to this project and even more so when the organiser agreed to getting our students involved.
"What better way to introduce our new first year students to life on the course than an afternoon working together on a live design project.
"We hope that Tierney’s moon-themed design will raise lots of cash in the Ebay charity auction that closes at 1pm on the 3rd of November."
