At the present time, the FDA Stitched textiles is too small a program to attract a university validation, so, we have decided to offer a broader based course at the same level. We are using BTEC for the base units which means that we don’t need a university validating partner. The broad based opportunities include painting and drawing, sculpture, photography, print, stitched textiles, video and illustration, fashion. The course will start with short projects involving all areas of the studios, followed by students own long projects where they can move into their favoured media on an individual basis. I think this is very exciting and will give my usual student base more opportunity to ‘have a go’ at many disciplines.
HNC/HND Contemporary Art Practice is now interviewing …

Finally, there is funding! Students may apply for loans which of course do not have to be repaid until there is a level of income achieved, please look at the student finance website to see the opportunities. Some prospective students have been under the impression that they are too old for these loans … this is NOT the case… so, come and join us on this new adventure!
