Textiles for the Outpost shop - 'Producing Work to Exhibit'

Ref: C2421379

This course will expand knowledge of simple and experimental techniques. Students will produce designs and samples to improve skills, which will lead to developing artwork on an agreed theme. The work produced will reach professional standards and then be prepared for display in the Outpost shop and gallery. Students will spend a day in the gallery working as a team to install the exhibition. That will be followed by a private view that will celebrate personal and group achievements.
