This week we explore the world of Georgina Walters, a 2nd year student from Staffordshire, currently studying on our BA Interior and Spatial Design course.

Describe your Chelsea experience in 3 words? Engaging, inspiring, exhausting

What do you enjoy most about studying at Chelsea? The atmosphere, as the work ethic is really great and everyone’s ideas are so diverse it pushes you to think about things in new ways. This is relevant to the syllabus as well, which constantly makes you reconsider how you can do things.

How are you enjoying living in London? I love it, there’s always something interesting to visit and experience that I couldn’t find anywhere else!

Where do you live? Southwark

What’s your neighbourhood like? Relaxed….very close to Southbank and Tate Modern which is great, and it’s easy to get to central London and Uni.

What has been your greatest challenge so far on the course and how have you overcome it? Orthographic Drawing! But it’s all about practice and thinking logically, rather than over thinking, it’s not as complicated as you imagine. So I overcame this issue by asking lots of questions about everything I struggled with and practicing as much as possible.

What are your greatest achievements/awards/exhibitions? Probably being an Ambassador for the Artist Rooms programme back home, and presenting to all the other people associated at the Tate Modern.

What do you see yourself doing after your studies? Becoming a designer, probably not specific to one area as I like to do everything across a range of disciplines and I want to continue this breadth of work after I graduate.

And lastly, what would you say to anyone thinking of doing your course? Definitely do it! It’s hard work but incredibly diverse, fascinating and engaging. I think it gives you the opportunity to explore a range of spatial pathways without compromising on teaching technical skills. The projects are always very interesting and give you the chance to tailor your learning to you and your interests.
