A Creative Approach assesment results!

I was so excited to receive my results for my ‘A Creative Approach’ course this week. I managed to attain a pass mark of 62% which I am over the moon with. I was relieved to have passed let alone achieve that level!

It feels now as if I am making headway in my studies and gaining the first 40 points at Level 1 feels like a huge step forward in my journey to earn the degree in textiles that I have wanted for such a long time.

I have also received feedback from my tutor this week for the first project in this course. She seems happy with it and suggests more sketchbook development and deeper research and critical thinking when researching other artists. This is fair comment and is something I need to concentrate on. I never really know what is meant by ‘critical thinking’ so will need to discuss this with her further.

I hope it will give me the kick I need to keep going and focus on the next assignment which is due in February.


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.
