Student Profile: Marcos González Rodríguez, MA Textile Design
We spoke to MA Textile Design student Marcos González Rodriguez about his time at Chelsea
Describe you experience at Chelsea in 3 words.
Stimulating, joyful and challenging.
You can express yourself in many different ways and you always will find support to make your ideas a reality. Every day is a different and you can play a part in so many different projects featuring other students across a range of courses.
Where do you live at the moment and what do you enjoy most about being in London?
I live in Whitechapel, the main thing I like about London is that you can find your own way to do things, explore and be inspired by the city. I have had so many good experiences which have influenced me and my work.
What has been your greatest challenge so far on the course and how have you overcome it?
When making ethically rooted creative work it is important to keep innovating and that is the ‘master challenge’ in this course.
What do you see yourself doing after you graduate, what are your career ambitions?
When I graduate I would like to create my own brand, a label that identifies with my values.
What would you say to someone who is thinking about doing your course?
I would say just bring all your projects and ideas with you and you can make them happen here!
