These Times and How We Maintained Focus
Creative soul, Millie Sandy, is in the spotlight today, as part of our weekend celebration of this years graduating cohort.
‘Putto and the Unexpected Guest’ follows the story of a little cherub who struggles to identify love within himself and amongst his surroundings.
Confused by fellow putti, who spend their lives cultivating love through flowers and song, Putto turns to the Love Giants, inspired by the different forms of love according to the Ancient Greeks, to inquire about the unnamed burning sensation he frequently felt within himself.
With no luck, Putto begins a journey through nature, enjoying the simple things in life when he stumbles across his reflection within a puddle and soon realises what he had been missing.
This feeling was love and through his quest had discovered it did not only surface from the love received from others but could be felt through the love of oneself, the surroundings and of times gone by.
This message is emphasised through research of the Renaissance, a colour scheme developed from a trip to Rome and embedded through the use of recycled, ‘pre-loved’ materials.
In a time of uncertainty, where we must remain distant but strong, love still continues to hold this planet together.
Keep up your tremendous ethic Millie, you’re winning.
and HOW WE MAINTAINED FOCUS.
In light of the world pandemic Bath School of Design are undertaking immediate steps to ensure that, although working remotely, our design students are engaged, focussed and supported in their studies.
From now, until this situation rights itself, and we are able to interact socially, we’ll be dedicating the blog to how our Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors students are coping and making the very best of what they have.
Of course, they’re some of the most creative people around, what else would you expect ?
This first blog post celebrates how, within 6 days, they travelled home, some across the world, and set up studio immediately, ready to throw themselves back into work and start creating immediately
We salute you. You tenacious, talented people.

They made her feel most welcome and she settled in quickly to the life and pace of a working design studio.
While she was there she worked with the team on an article, by the studio, for the forecasting ‘bible’ Textile View magazine and sold a print in Paris to a Brazillian fashion company.
She is definitely one to watch!
We can’t wait!
