Oh my! What have I done? Enrolled to be an undergraduate student, again, is all! It was a spur of the moment kind of thing, but then again I have been wanting to study a creative subject in depth for some years now! I looked at a number of courses but the OCA Textiles courses really ‘spoke’ to me!
So where am I now?
I have read through my course materials
I have organised my Creativity Space
I have sharpened my pencils
I have read with interest and admiration a lot of OCA student blogs
I have made contact with my tutor
I have told friends and family what I am doing
I have given myself permission to spend up to 20 hours a week on my exercises and research
I have made a rough study plan/timetable ( and I mean ‘rough’)
I have set up a blog
I have thought- out and labelled some sketchbooks
I have completed a short drawing course to see if I still could..! (more about this later)
I have taken two out of a series of 5 practical lessons in using a sewing machine (it’s been ….years!)
Sorted some of my photos into albums
What I need to do next:
Write my student profile and email it to my tutor
Buy some A3/A2 cartridge paper
Update the blog with the results of my drawing course
Add my recent texture photos to my blog
Start exercise 1!
