Student Profile

Kate Mawby

Having previously spent ten years working in the fashion industry and freelancing for the last few years, I had been exploring setting up my own business designing knitted textiles for interiors. The structure of the course appealed to me because of its focus on developing business skills, as well as creative expression. This is what I wanted in order to give my career a new direction. The course offers a lot of freedom to explore your own interests. It is very self-directed, allowing you to control the evolution of your work, in order to get the most out of it. You have access to all of the art and design workshops, so there is opportunity to try new techniques and work with different materials. The course requires a lot of self-motivation and drive. It helps to have a focus when you start, but there is plenty of chance to change your mind and try new things
