How will I be taught?
Studio craft courses provide an opportunity for students with some experience to further learn and practise the skills of a specific craft at a higher level. Students will also be encouraged to develop a dialogue with the contemporary and historical context of the craft, and will be encouraged to keep a sketchbook/notebook to record ideas, processes and progress. Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors, most of whom are practising craftspeople. They will use variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, instruction, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
To ensure that students' learning needs are met, the tutor will work with the students to complete the required Individual Learning Plan.
As a starting point, all Creative subjects will have the following Course Outcomes
- Successfully demonstrate techniques/skills.
- Use appropriate media, materials and processes.
- Use work of others to inspire own work.
- Demonstrate an understanding of relevant Health and Safety issues.
These outcomes will be the basis of all learning. Additional Personal Learning Outcomes can be negotiated with your tutor to better meet your individual needs.
