Student spotlight:

Francesco

"One of the best things about being a UAL student are the amazing facilities we can experiment in. So far I’ve used the wood and metal workshops, the dark rooms to produce my own photos and the 3D lab to scan and print objects."

Before studying at UAL, Francesco was a bag maker in Florence. He wanted to make the move to London to further his career opportunities. He feels that every day on his BA (Hons) Cordwainers Fashion Bags and Accessories course is an amazing learning curve, especially as a mature student.

"We recently worked on a competition with the accessories supplier YKK and it's been my favourite project so far. The result was a creation that combined classic leatherwork techniques with an innovative design."

Francesco finds UAL's facilities and opportunity for experimentation a real highlight. He has been able to use London College of Fashion's wood and metal workshops, the darkrooms to develop his own photos and the 3D lab to scan and print 3D objects. He also feels that, as an arts student, being in London is a big part of being inspired.

"One of the best things about being in London, and at UAL, is the independence and fast-pace of life we live. My favourite cultural sites include the Design Museum, the Barbican and the V&A. I also love exploring all of the markets in London."

Francesco feels that the large number of skills he's learning as a UAL student is so valuable, from developing self-discipline to the techniques of making bags and accessories.

"Take it seriously, and experiment as much as you can. University is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a lot of people, so take full advantage of it."
