Supporting Progression Conference: Post from Tees inside

On 19th March 2014, Teesside University hosted an event for careers advisors and art tutors from some of our key feeder institutions. The Supporting Progression Conference was to help in broadening understanding of courses on offer at Teesside, and to allow delegates to try out some of the things students might study once an Undergraduate here.

As part of our department, Interior Design, we offered a ‘textiles for interiors’ workshop, looking at trends and mood boards for interior spaces. Delegates used imagery, found objects and textiles to capture a mood; similar to the way an interior design student would analyse the interior design market and source ideas for their assignments.

What a great atmosphere! Everyone joined in with great spirit, and we hope experienced a little of what it may be like to be a design student in the interiors section.
