The WSD philosophy
Artists and designers work in ways that are experimental and playful, informed by research and contemporary life in built, natural and cultural landscapes. Creative practice, learning, teaching and thinking is where we find new paths and methods for a sustainable future as energized and empowered individuals, communities and societies.
The subject areas covered at WSD from further education to doctorate include Contemporary Art and Design, Landscape Architecture and Garden Design, as well as Professional Floristry. Through integrating the theories and practices of these courses WSD ensures a holistic understanding of the role of art and design in the contemporary world.
