Starting Today: These Times

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.

 

New York

On the course,here in Bath,UK we are very keen to expand our visual reference and each year we look at ways to explore and immerse ourselves in a foreign culture, land or cityscapes.

Visiting New York we experienced street life,cultural heritage,studio visits and talks,fashion,art galleries,museums and architectural gems.

Here is a snapshot of some of the visual reference.

The video records the moment Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabrielle began to play as I sat down in a cafe.
