Day Trippers

Above: Oh! Who can ever be tired of Bath.



We took the tourist bus around Bath.

The first year induction included a ‘wheeled’ acclimatisation of the city.

We had no need to emphasise the wonderful world heritage sites but we did point out the fantastic shops, where graduation is held etc..and we also mentioned the night clubs in passing!

Social Butterflies

What could be nicer than on a spring evening joining fellow artists and designers at the opening of a terrific show?

We went along on Wednesday evening to view the work of a ‘sister’ course here at Bath School of Art and Design
Creative Arts Practice is the ideal course if your textile process is informed and engaged in art based thinking.
You will use textile media to create work and concepts which are considered gallery based.
