Much admired throughout the School of Art and Design Yoji Morimoto’s work is engaging and exciting. Definitely one to watch.
Yoji will graduate this year from Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors at Bath School of Art and Design.
Third year student Rhian Beynon is having the most wonderful experiences and making fabulous memories while out in India.
Everyday Rhian is learning new skills, and tradition methods, in textile process.Selected by the British Council Rhian is throughly enjoying this extensive textile programme.
This is such a great start to her 3rd year.
We’re excited to she how all those new skills will be developed and shared in the Autumn.We can’t wait to hear and see the results.
Rhian says “We got a chance to try block printing in jodhpur which was great. They only use natural dyes and some of the blocks were over 500 years old! Such a great experience!
They block print about 25 saris a day each! Such talented people”
This year, running alongside our fabulous exhibition of work from our graduating 3rd year students, we’ll have a ‘shop’ full of marvellous handcrafted items for sale.
The 2nd years have been busy printing,embroidering,patching,beading,knitting etc…and have produced a glittering array of desirable goodies.Get in there quick and buy before I do!
Watch this space for images and details of the items.
We’ve also put up a backdrop to this display.
A fascinating collection of samples made by the 1st yrs.
This’ll be exciting to view for prospective students,as they’ll have a wonderful overview of 1st,2nd and 3rd years work and they’ll be able to see what they could be up to if they sucessfully gain a place.
Here are some of the responses to the embroidery and print brief by the 1st yrs.
Last November the School of Art staged a show featuring the domestic tea towel.
We had a fascinating time looking at design styles in communication through drawing and the written word.
The tea towel, as the focal point of the show, is a creative and amusing way to look at communication. The exhibition draws the viewers attention to the idea that a practical but necessary item can also be a work of art, a form of advertising, an instructional guide and by default a celebration of all things British.
