It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Well it is for Bath School of Art and Design’s textile alumni Sara Gifford.
Sara is busy working in the team producing and conjuring up the magic for seasonal display at Harrods.
Sara says…
I’m a Visual merchandiser in the home department in Harrods, we create 90% of the in-store schemes and work alongside brands that have their own brand handwriting.

I would say Christmas is my favourite season.I love to create a magical space for all ages

We do have a very significant amount of say in all aspects of vm, from research, concept and delivery.
Eventually I would like to go into home styling for magazines or catalogs and further down the line to have my own business.

We can’t see why not Sara.You were an extremely capable and creative student and nothing has changed!

Keep in touch Sara with updates please.We love to see your practice.

Before we finish let’s look at the start.

Over the summer we look at how we will improve and amend the project briefs.
Drawing and colour are the first topics for the new intake of 1st year students in October in Bath UK
Looking over the module we check to see that we are meeting the outcomes and that the learning is successful,measurable and put into immediate practice.

We have a so many new ideas on how to develop but as you can see we can’t squeeze much more in!.

We know it was well received and by the look on the students faces it was quite often fun!

Everyone is looking forward to another autumn awash with colour at the School of Art and Design
