I was thrilled to be invited to meet the 1st and 2nd students on the BA (Hons) Interior Decoration, Design and Styling degree course at Plymouth College of Art. The department has a wonderful buzz about it: what better way to fire one's visual senses, every day, than to see this sign at the entrance?
I gave them a brief lowdown on my own career and we discussed Styling. In the afternoon the 2nd year students presented their ongoing Styling projects to me - a very varied mix of studio and location shots, with highly imaginative and well-thought-through plans and beautifully detailed sketchbooks. I wish them luck with the projects!
Thanks to Ally Turner and Cathryn Bishop, Lecturer & Acting Programme Leader, and Programme Leader respectively, for inviting me to meet the students and to see your really inspiring studios. (It was my first visit to Plymouth - and what a view from the train ...)
