How will I be taught?
Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and craftspeople and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. Students will need to understand the potential benefit from the programme of study, read and interpret ideas, communicate responses that are clear, logical and understandable and manage your own time. You will undertake critical evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance personal skills.
The tutor will give you individual feedback on your project.
What do I need to bring with me?
Your sewing machine, all attachments, feet and power leads. Thread, scissors, pins, concealed zip 8' long, zip 8' long, approx 75cm curtain lining, and any fabric you have difficulties sewing with or that you're not sure about. There is a cafe for refreshments, but it would be a good idea to bring a packed lunch. Alternatively, there are a number of cafes and restaurants within a short walk.
What can I do next?
