Course studied: BA (Hons) Textile Design for Fashion and Interiors
Textiles designer Sarah has an innovative and distinctive style and approach to both painting and design. Passionate about colour and print, she specialises in large-scale, hand painted wall and floor art.
Sarah graduated in 2019 with a first class honours degree.
Since graduating, I've been awarded residency at Bristol Textile Quarter and Spike Island, where I work from my studio designing for my own brand and working on freelance projects such as the recent SS19 collection with Circleline Design Studio, London.
My work was featured at Première Vision 2019 as part of the main fabric forums. I was also approached to have a solo exhibition at the Redbrick Building gallery.
"Bath School of Design offered amazing facilities and I felt the course suited the path I wanted to take perfectly."
What were the highlights of your time here?
The tutors were extremely supportive and inspiring. I received amazing tuition from not only the tutors and technicians but my dyslexia support staff to.
How did the course support your steps into industry?
The opportunities given to me were invaluable. I experienced a busy print studio in London, as well as the Première Vision show in Paris and live industry briefs – all starting within the first year of the course.
"My advice for current students is..."
Keep working away over summer and don’t loose the buzz. If creative blocks get you, go out, take a deep breath and get some new inspiration. The more you take in, the more your creative mind has to work with. And turn up! The tutors' knowledge is invaluable whilst you're at uni.
"The opportunities are incredible and there's a huge amount of support available."
"The best thing about the course..."
Was the freedom for creativity in many directions.
"I am most proud of..."
Becoming confident in my chosen practice and gaining recognition for my work.
