Laurence North

Job title
Senior Lecturer
01326 213845

I have worked at Falmouth University for almost 25 years, during this time I have worked with a number of courses. I currently work with BA(Hons) Illustration, BA(Hons) Architecture and BA(Hons) Drawing. I also deliver a programme of lectures, which are open to all students at Falmouth.

I am interested in the interdisciplinary nature of art and design and the strength students may draw from breadth. I teach both studio based practice and theory based critical studies, which I believe to be differing parts of a whole experience.
