Review of work against the assessment criteria – Assignment 1

I feel I am coming some way towards fulfilling the assessment criteria for this course. I am beginning to feel that I have some technical and visual skills and am beginning to communicate ideas. I don’t feel that I am showing much evidence of a personal voice as yet as I found the first projects very prescriptive but my samples do show some of my own personal tastes.

Where I am falling down at the moment is research. I have been leaving this too long and must get on with it. As I have mentioned before I really need to get more work done in my sketchbook as well. I have however, been keeping up with my learning log on this blog and hope that I am reviewing and critiquing my work enough.


About Julie Hooker

Having recently returned to my roots in Surrey, I am currently studying a BA Hons degree with the OCA. My work is often inspired by the local countryside in the beautiful Surrey Hills area and the wild rugged nature of the North Cornish coast. Steam engines and abandoned industrial history are also recent themes. A free machine embroiderer and felt maker; I like to explore the use of natural, found materials to create my art, whether that be as raw materials to stitch or weave with or as a material with which to produce dye or print with. Previously, I completed City and Guilds parts 1 & 2 Creative Embroidery at the East Berkshire College in Windsor in 2007. I was also awarded first place in the wearable art section of the National Quilt Championships 2008 and 2009 held annually at Sandown Park.
