Textiles 3: Advanced - Course - Online
The course aims to improve the quality of design work; develop further the use of a personal visual language; help students generate and complete a major programme of practical work and demonstrate independence as a designer.
This course will help you make the transition from self-motivated student to independent designer. With the help of your tutor and the course guidelines, you will plan your own study programme and by the end of the course you will have demonstrated your ability to conceive and develop innovative design ideas and take them to a successful conclusion. The projects you choose to do can develop any aspect of your previous work but they can also explore completely new ideas. You should normally have completed Textiles 2 but direct entry onto the course is possible for more experienced designers. All students on this course choose their own tutor from the OCA portfolio of advanced textile design tutors.
- Design an extended programme of personal study in discussion with your tutor
- Design and complete a series of progressive and related projects
- Write project commentaries
- Produce an extended written project of 5,000 words.
You are allocated a tutor and receive their details in your course pack. You work from the course materials and send regular assignments to your tutor. These are returned to you with comment and advice. The course fee includes tutor feedback on your set assignments, but you can purchase feedback and comment on additional pieces of work if you wish.
