Volunteering abroad

Final year student (Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors) Chanel Buckland, has taken the opportunity to share her volunteering experiences with students from across all years

Chanel has a wealth of ideas, tips and suggestions to make your contribution to this worthwhile cause a success.

On this occasion Chanel talked about her time in Nepal, Thailand and Cambodia.

These experiences have inspired her to complete her degree by using the images and drawings from her travels to inform her final project.

Hello and Welcome Chicago

Working in the Textile Design for fashion and Interiors studios and workshops, for the next fortnight, are students from Columbia College, Chicago, USA.

We are delighted to be working with their tutor Justin and students:

Molly. Rebecca,Laura,Sarah and Estefania.

They kicked off the first day with an introduction to their current projects and aims and we got a fascinating insight into their final collections.

Our students are now engaging with them in the studios to discover what a typical working day would be for them back home and to exchange good practice and skills.

2019.Come and see what we are doing.You’re welcome

During 2019 you will see the most fabulous transformation of the old Herman Miller site at Locksbrook transform into a ‘State of the Art School of Art’.

Still retaining our Sion Hill site, with its extensive textile facilities, we will grow and develop on two sparkly sites.

Join us – in our quest to offer the very best in art and design education.

Construction Skills

Using Locksbrook Road and Sion Hill as inspiration the students are extending their making and construction skills

Beautiful work from our 3rd year students who will graduate this year.

The outcomes will be interior products for both sites or fashion or interior product to sell in the Art School shop.

Exciting times. Watch this space.
