Art & Design

Art students' work

The inspiring new facilities at Leek School of Art are laid out over 3 floors, with impressive windows overlooking the park creating a light spacious environment for students to work in.

There are 3 large design studios, a traditional life room, textiles, 3D, print and ceramic studios. The 3D/print studio has a variety of equipment including traditional lithograph printers, a glass kiln, silkscreen print processing and a state of the art laser cutter which will cut long lengths of fabric or wood.  The Ceramics Studio has wheels for throwing alongside mould making plaster facilities and kilns.

Each studio has an interactive whiteboard for digitally connected collaborative sessions. There are also banks of laptop computers in the design studios offering students the use of the latest Adobe design software packages to augment their skills in creative painting, drawing and designing. The new furniture make for a clean and comfortable environment with plan chests and lockers for each student to store work securely, each floor has lifts providing access for all. 

The feelings evoked by the old art rooms in the Nicholson Institute are imbued in the new William Morris building with traditional plaster sculptures featured in the rooms and the foyer area which leads into the Gallery Cafe.
