  • 3. whatwhyhow
  • 4. the year
  • 5. you and your work• 5 weeks to make work.
  • 6. you and your work• The first 5 weeks of this course are about you developing what you want to.
  • 7. you and your work•It is about you identifying, developing andfollowing a research path in both your practicaland textural work.
  • 8. you and your work•You will need to consider how to use your timeeffectively as you cannot get this time back.
  • 9. you and your work•Supported by individual tutorials alongsidedevelopmental and skill based workshops.
  • 10. you and your workIt envisage that this time will involve you in -•Research - Deciding on your path(s) of interestsand supporting your thinking.•Context - looking around at the work of othersand where work is seen - shops, galleries etc.•Experimenting - trying stuff out by using skillsand techniques.•Testing - making stuff, including final piece(s)•Reflection - on what you have done and thenpresenting it to others.
  • 11. you and your work• It is expected that you will make a body of work for yourself - all of these activities - research, context, experimenting, testing, final completed pieces and reflection are your work.
  • 12. reflection• Nov 5th –• Pecha Kucha• This is you presenting what you have done, a chance to bring all your work together and decide on what to do next.
  • 13. reflection• Pecha Kucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.
  • 14. reflection• Preparation.• We are very enthusiastic about this task and its relationship to learning within the course.
  • 15. reflection• This has been conceived as a rounding up of your initial body of work - after which it is anticipated that you will go on to further develop your work and practice - this is so that you can now focus.• This is within the context that you will be getting a response from your cohort - this is feedback and needing to consider it - this is reflection.
  • 16. reflection• So -• Consider what you want to tell us what you want us to know what you want to learn• Tell a story.• Engage with your audience.• Consider your learning.
  • 17. focus• 4 weeks• Developing what your work is, could or should be.• To Dec 2nd

  • 33. • Description This project initiates your final year of study and aims to prepare you in planning, developing and organising your final project work for the next unit. In the early stages of the project you will be given advice on designing a Learning Agreement. This document will propose the direction of your study for the rest of the year and you will need to pay careful attention to explaining how your intended course of study will address the Learning Outcomes for the year.

  • 36. • The project also enables you to broaden and deepen your understanding of the importance of research and the types of research that are appropriate and relevant to your area of study within textiles. Experimentation and development of ideas, techniques and materials will need to be considered in the development of your project into its final stages in the next unit. You may want to consider how your work in each unit will prepare you for employment or further study.

  • 39. • The project involves development of a research report alongside your studio development. Your research report will be developed independently with support from your tutors and will form an investigation into an area closely related to your practice in textiles. This could be a theoretical, social or cultural issue or something more closely aligned to the industry practice associated with your subject.

  • 42. • This project addresses the key areas of study as follows:• Studio Practice: Your studio practice will be determined by the direction of your intended project. You will be expected to experiment with techniques, materials and concepts that you have learnt in Years 1 and 2. Time management and organisation are essential in planning your project and access to appropriate workshops, as is your ability to assess risks and use safe working practices. It is important that you develop a range of visual, text based and material research throughout this project. You should also consider the contexts that you may want to explore.
