Today I had 4 tutorials!
Helen Brown: Art and Design Mentor – gave me help with my proposals for Major Project and later with Dissertation Proposal
Stuart Garfoot: Major Project – gave me some very helpful and reassuring words of advice and sketched out some of the mould making processes to help me understand them better. I have a very positive tutorial for Major Project today! 🙂
Max: Dissertation – Listened and spoke to me about my dissertation
David Jones: Dissertation – Helping me come up with a research question which I now think will be… “Process or Design: Is making a conceptual activity?”

Activites and things to do:

  1. Draw and write mind maps for Major Project and Creative Realisation on the theme / topic of Journeys highlighting which strand each module will take
  2. Complete draft proposal for Creative Realisation
  3. Sketch out initial ideas and evaluate them against project aims for both making modules
  4. After discussions with Simon Eccles in the hot glass workshop and Mark Bath in the plaster workshop, I know that my ideas are possible for Major Project but will be a challenge. I need to start mould making to test out ideas. Need to find small feel and big shoes – idea, could use a dolls foot for now for the foot in a shoe kiln cast idea
  5. Include initial visual and contextual research collected from Robyn Townsend on her “Self Portrait” project featuring her life through shoes
