1st year Milly has had the most fantastic time contributing to studio life at
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!
2nd year student Ryoji helps out at the National Arts Centre Tokyo.
So looking forward to hearing all about it when he returns.
So heartwarming to receive…..
Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters click for link
On Monday we welcomed into the dept the Worshipful Company of Framework Knitters.
Here seen chatting with Sara about her work and future plans for a career in the knitting industry.
Gathering in the work produced by the 1st yrs. It’s fascinating to see totally different ways to explore colour.Here are two examples,each exciting in their own right. We have been lucky enough to have been joined by students from the Idea, Material and Object(3D Design)course. They have benefitted from exploring drawing and colour alongside textile students and the textile students have gained by looking at projects through different eyes.Win,win! After Christmas we translate this research into printed,embroidered or constructed outcomes. Keep an eye on this site to be the first to see the imaginative and innovative responses to this initial research.
The greetings cards,wrapping paper,tags and ribbons brief is always eagerly waited.The 2nd year students appreciate this diversion from a typical textile brief.We are so lucky to be welcomed by a world renowned company into their studio and to hear first hand about the workings of international design organisation.
2nd year Olivia starts her new drawing.Careful, considered work.
We are so looking forward to the place being lively with students again and, of course, fabulous work.
We are looking forward to seeing the new drawing, produced by the incoming 1st yrs, in response to the brief set over the holidays.
The images show work produced for interview or undertaken once the student was established in university.Each student is advised individually on how to achieve the very best results based on their own very unique style of working to design.
