T1-EI: Textiles 1 – Exploring Ideas

With Understanding Art 1 – Western Art “sent” off for assessment (actually just the blog link), I took a couple of weeks to rest up, tidy up, and check I’m still committed to the OCA Textiles course. The answer was a definite “Yes!”, and I have now enrolled in the next unit Textiles 1 – Exploring Ideas.

I have no expectations or hopes in terms of learning specific techniques or information. I feel one of the joys of a structured course of learning is that I’m pretty much guaranteed to be given the opportunity to build on previous learning and to gain valuable knowledge and skills. My expectations and hopes are all around how I use this opportunity.

  • I want to make the course my own – interpret briefs and make selections that reflect me and my interests.
  • I want to take risks and challenge myself.
  • I want to surprise myself.

A new page is set up, complete with the goals and time plan – see https://fibresofbeing.wordpress.com/textiles-1-exploring-ideas/. Time to make contact with my tutor and get started.

    I find it an intriguing / exciting idea, but I’m not sure how to plan to be surprised 🙂 . Hopefully it will keep me open and pushing.
