We couldn’t resist

In January we visited colleagues in Norway to confirm our exchange agreement and look at good practice.
They welcomed the first of our students there this month.
Thanks for letting us know of your safe arrival Sarah.
Watch out for posts from our happy(and excited) student.

We took a collection of student work over with us and while we were there we couldn’t resist photographing the pieces in this dramatic and beautiful setting.
Here are some outtakes.

Fabulous eh ?

What a great experience exploring Iceland (2014) was and what an influence the pattern,colour,texture and architecture had on the student’s work.

Well before we left the UK we collaborated on major projects with Drexel University students in the USA.
We emailed, we text,we phoned, we skyped,we communicated and we worked together on the joint projects.
Eventually we all flew into Iceland and confirmed our friendship.
Once there we came together to finalise the filming and celebrate our relationship by visiting Reykjavik Fashion Week.

One of the most satisfying and rewarding trips last year was the study visit to Iceland.Our school collaborated on a joint project with Drexel University USA and we together developed skills offered by both organisations.We shared knowledge in textiles,photography,printmaking,marketing and styling.

Every year we travel and encourage exchange and collaboration.

looking forward to sharing with you our experiences in Japan,Paris,Eindhoven,Poland etc… over the coming weeks.





Norway-day 1

It’s not THAT cold for day one of the International Week here at Volda University in Norway.

Really excited to be meeting with the other European Universities and strengthening our international cooperation and exchange programme
It’s always a positive move for our students to spend time living and working in other stimulating environments. We encourage students from across the world to join us too,here in the School of Art and Design in Bath UK, to experience our way of life and work ethic( yes, it is fascinating to other people!).Here’s to a stimulating time.
