Volunteering abroad

Final year student (Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors) Chanel Buckland, has taken the opportunity to share her volunteering experiences with students from across all years

Chanel has a wealth of ideas, tips and suggestions to make your contribution to this worthwhile cause a success.

On this occasion Chanel talked about her time in Nepal, Thailand and Cambodia.

These experiences have inspired her to complete her degree by using the images and drawings from her travels to inform her final project.

Sharing the passion for Textiles

Up Late at the Holburne Museum, Bath.

Our students thoroughly enjoyed sharing their love and passion for textiles with the wider public.
The 2nd yr’s had responded to the museum collections and their responses and interpretations were on display for all to see and admire.

The feedback was tremendously postive from students and visitors and from the museum staff too.
Here’s to next year.

We visit Dutch Design Week 2017

Read about what the coloured building here

Eindhoven hosts Dutch Design Week every year in October.

It is full of the most exciting and exhilarating ideas surrounding design , sustainability and ways to think and do!

We look forward to it immensely and both staff and 2nd and 3rd year students leave feeling motivated and raring to go!

Here are a few of the exhibits we saw.

and here’s a link to some wonderful images that capture the spirit of the show very successfully

The School of Art and Design has acquired a ‘new to them’ building.
The Action Factory on Locksbrook Road in Bath, in the UK.

The iconic building is situated next to the river and within walking distance of both the city centre and the main student accommodation.

Although textiles won’t be centred there we will of course use all the facilities and be part of the bigger picture.
We have our own exciting plans under wraps and, as they say, watch this space.

Currently there’s a staff exhibition in part of the space and this show, along with the student exhibition at Sion Hill, has been drawing in the crowds.

If you missed our show we will be at New Designers from Weds 28th June until Sat 1st July 2017 and then again at RHS Hampton Court from July 4th -9th July 2017

Please say Hi. We love to talk to you.

Below are pictures from the show and images of the building before the adaptation.
