Hi, I’m Emily. I do Photography.
Hi, I’m Freya. I am a second year Textile Design student
And what workshop have you done today?
The Lino Cutting for Beginners.
It’s just a really hands on way with the teacher explaining how to do it and then you get let loose to do whatever you want with it.
It’s another good way to explore the other campus because I am up at Penryn, so it is really good to see all the facilities down here and try new skills that we don’t get taught on our course which is really good.
It’s a different process that I have never used before and a different process that not many students on my course have also used so it might put me above some of the other ones with my processes and skills and it’s another skill that I can leave University with to put into industry and things like that.
It’s a nice interaction between the different subjects as well so you get to know the course leaders and the Techs and if you need to come back, then it’s a good connection to have.
Well I mean I want to be some form of artist so it’s just a different technique to add to what I might do in the future.
Yes, same. I want to be a designer. So anything that can help me with that and a different skill that is a little bit different will really help push my work.
It’s a really good way to have a time and a place to actually come and try it, rather than try and do it by yourself – make the connection yourself. It’s just an easier way.
They provide the materials for you, so it’s free so there is really nothing to stop you and when the courses are finished for the summer, it helps to keep your creativity going when you are not really doing anything. It’s really good.
You should sign up, do it.
Even if there isn’t any space, join the waiting list and try as many things. There is no stopping you really.
