and HOW WE MAINTAINED FOCUS.
In light of the world pandemic Bath School of Design are undertaking immediate steps to ensure that, although working remotely, our design students are engaged, focussed and supported in their studies.
From now, until this situation rights itself, and we are able to interact socially, we’ll be dedicating the blog to how our Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors students are coping and making the very best of what they have.
Of course, they’re some of the most creative people around, what else would you expect ?
This first blog post celebrates how, within 6 days, they travelled home, some across the world, and set up studio immediately, ready to throw themselves back into work and start creating immediately
We salute you. You tenacious, talented people.

The first years could spin a yarn but better still they are inventing their own.
Using found materials and spoils from the scrapstore the students are creating fantasy yarns and threads. From this experiment they will construct exciting 3D surfaces and structures
