New academic year starts again

We welcomed our new students last week and all returning Year 1, 2 and 3 students this week.

New students began their induction week by presenting their summer projects to the faculty, displaying a great mix of ideas and design work. The week continued with a mix of creative workshops, inductions to pattern cutting and garment production. We also had our Welcome Event, complete with live music, fancy dress photobooth (the staff took part too!) and a bbq on the balcony.

The week also included a trip to London’s Victoria and Albert Museum to visit their fantastic ‘Fashioned from Nature’ exhibition. Students have been asked to choose an inspiring piece from the exhibition and develop their own design concept for their first design project.

We have definitely hit the ground running and are all excited about the year ahead. Watch this space for more updates as they unfold…
