We are so lucky, to have on our doorstep, the most wonderful Holburne Museum
The Holburne Museum (formerly known as the Holburne of Menstrie Museum and the Holburne Museum of Art) is located in Sydney Pleasure Gardens, Bath, Somerset, England. The city’s first public art gallery, the Grade I listed building is home to fine and decorative arts built around the collection of Sir William Holburne. Artists in the collection include Gainsborough, Guardi, Stubbs, Ramsay and Zoffany.

The School of Art and Design has acquired a ‘new to them’ building.
The Action Factory on Locksbrook Road in Bath, in the UK.
The iconic building is situated next to the river and within walking distance of both the city centre and the main student accommodation.
Although textiles won’t be centred there we will of course use all the facilities and be part of the bigger picture.
We have our own exciting plans under wraps and, as they say, watch this space.
Currently there’s a staff exhibition in part of the space and this show, along with the student exhibition at Sion Hill, has been drawing in the crowds.
If you missed our show we will be at New Designers from Weds 28th June until Sat 1st July 2017 and then again at RHS Hampton Court from July 4th -9th July 2017
Please say Hi. We love to talk to you.
Below are pictures from the show and images of the building before the adaptation.
The show opens at 6pm tonight
See you there.
