Botanical garden inspire students and staff

Art and Design students at the Llwyn y Bryn campus recently visited the National Botanic Garden of Wales in Carmarthenshire to gather research and inspiration for their induction and first assignment based on ‘Natural Form’.

Armed with sketchbooks, pencils, paints and cameras, the students and staff visually recorded what they saw and these will be used for further development in specific design areas such as posters, logos, fine art prints, textiles, collage and sculpture.
