PROFESSIONAL MASTERCLASS AT BOLTON UNIVERSITY

Students were able to gain feedback on their current trend mood boards and portfolios – gaining invaluable advice on how best to present their work and succeed in interviews. 

‘The event was a huge success, and enabled students to hear about important aspects of the design industry from key speakers with experience. The live interview element also broke down the ‘mystery’ of what happens at an interview and how students can best prepare their portfolios and understand what types of questions are asked. We shall certainly be inviting BITA to another session in the near future.’ Donna Claypool (Programme Leader, Textiles and Surface Design at Bolton School of Arts).
