Course Description

What you will study The Extended Diploma is made up of seventeen units, five core units to which visual studies, material and processes, ideas and concepts, communication through art and design are fundamental, plus a range of specialist units including: - Exploring specialist textile techniques - Fabric manipulation - Embroidered textiles - Surface pattern - Printed textiles - Fashion visualisation - Fashion presentation techniques - Application and realisation (final major project) In the first year we will visit local and regional art galleries and textile factories and have a London visit. In the second year you will have the opportunity to participate in a one week overseas residential, probably in Venice, Italy. Maths and English are key elements of any full-time programme of study in College. If you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C in these subjects, you will need to attend sessions allocated on your timetable. These are varied and designed to cater for all ability levels. You will receive advice and guidance regarding the correct level for you. Skills in Maths and English will support your full-time course, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C. This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study. Your Course Structure Classroom based - 25% Practical work - 75% How you will learn You will learn by completing projects and assignments based on realistic workplace situations, activities and demands. The majority of your time will be spent in studio based activities which may vary from tutor-led workshops and demonstrations to exploratory practical work carried out by you. Investigating and making reference to the work of others is also a big part of what we do and this will involve research activities, lectures and challenging homework tasks.
