Locksbrook and Sion Hill:Grids and Checks

To celebrate the next exciting phase in the life of Bath School of Art and Design the 3rd year Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors have been taking inspiration, for their work, from the iconic Herman Miller building on Locksbrook Road, Bath.The history of our Sion Hill campus has proved to be a rich source of inspiration to our students too and they have arrived at some innovative and exciting results.

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.
