Bay Plastics have been supporting and supplying schools, colleges, students and universities throughout the UK for over 20 years.
We supply a unique range of educational plastics as well as providing resources of information to handle any questions you might have.
There is limited funding available for student sponsorships. This funding will need to be applied for in advance, and discussed with a member of our dedicated sales team.
Bay Plastics are proud to showcase individuals and their work that we have sponsored over recent years. These talented students have used the high quality materials supplied by Bay Plastics to bring their designs to life.
Heidi Thomas - Surface Design using Perspex live edge
Heidi Thomas is in her 3rd year of study at Somerset College of Art. To date Heidi's designs have featured routing geometric patterns into wood to give depth to a flat surface. With the help of Fluorescent Perspex, specifically its 'Live Edge' effect, Heidi can create a 3D appearance from its light reflecting qualities.
She wants to create a contrast between the 'live edge' Perspex and wood that she already working with onto designing routed panels to construct sculptural wall panelling. The linear patterns will transcribe from wood to Perspex being hinged or inlayed. Heidi is using a range of Fluorescent Perspex coloured sheets which are all 3mm in thickness.
Heidi showed off her work at London's New Designers exhibition. We wish her all the best in her studies and look forward to seeing the great new designs she can now create with Fluorescent Perspex.

Amy Woodcock - Perspex Acrylic Lighting Displays
I would like to thank Bay Plastics for supplying me with the plastic for my lighting designs, which I produced for my graduating year from the Interdisciplinary Textile Design course at UWE Bristol. They gave me a lot of help and support throughout sampling and making my final designs. The course focuses on conceptually lead design products and we are encouraged to try and explore various materials so Bay gave me the freedom to sample and explore plastic as a material within the lights.
It has been a pleasure to work with the company, they have been very friendly and professional; a great source of help and encouragement that I needed being a young designer.

Kayleigh Falcus - The Journey of Life
I would like to thank Bay Plastics Ltd for the sponsorship I received The products are of very high quality and enabled me to create a very high quality jewellery/accessories degree collection as I studied the BA Textiles & Surface and Design at Cleveland College of Art & Design. The collection is called ‘The Journey of Life” and I used a combination of opaque and transparent Perspex in range of colours including acid green. This neon colour brought my collection to life! They accommodated my needs and I updated them regularly with updates on how my collection was developing.

Sarah Foster - BA (hon's) Interior Textiles / Surface Design Degree
My collections investigate the process of using photographic information to produce texture, structure and colour as 3d forms and surfaces. Images which I take everyday of my immediate surroundings become translated by abstracting and manipulating contrasting materials and techniques.
