Drawing,painting and colour.

It’s always so exciting to receive such complimentary  letters from ex -students. How generous and kind to find the time to write.

Hello Amanda,

……….

I have found all of the drawing, painting and colour work I was encouraged to explore at Bath Spa incredibly valuable in industry. As much as the finalised repeats have to be briefed to suppliers in a digital format I think that you can only truly play with colour mixes with real paints and crayons to understand printed colour and achieve vibrant colour balances that are really hard to achieve on a computer screen!

Do you remember this design by Chloe from the blog post in October last year ?

Rarely do textile designers receive instant credit for their incredible achievements.That glory is usually reserved for fashion designers or perhaps painters.
Alumni of Bath School of Art and Design’s textile department Emily Cant (Badgers of Bohemia) has worked tirelessly on her quest to establish her name in her own right and it’s beginning to pay off.
At this November’s Ideal Home show in London Emily’s wallpaper was a bold feature in Tracey Andrews room setting – Baroque Nordic.
Well done Emily,your persistence is truly paying dividends.You should be very proud.
