Moving facilities from its previous homes at Charing Cross and Southampton Row, CSM’s School of Art is now split between King’s Cross and the Byam Shaw Campus in Archway (a move that caused some controversary last year, as reported by our sister title Creative Review).

Byam Shaw now plays host to CSM’s print studio, which features some of the School Art’s early print machines alongside the latest in digital technology.

CSM says, ‘Students across the schools, Fashion, Design, Art and Performance can access the studio to continue the CSM tradition of combining a love of getting hands dirty with challenging ideas and innovative responses to communication, design and art.’
