One Small Step…

While I might not be flying to the moon or changing the World, on Friday I took another step towards my dream of achieving a Bachelor of Arts degree. I have been accepted onto the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (FDAD) at West Dean College starting in September 🙂

Putting the portfolio together was quite a challenge for me, partly because my non-felt pieces are few and far between, making it difficult to select pieces that I thought were either good enough or had a story to tell, and then there were the decisions about order and layout…

While there are plenty of sites offering an opinion on how to create a portfolio for interview there aren’t many examples of actual portfolios so I thought I would share mine in case it is useful to other wanna-be students, not that my portfolio is a beacon to be followed but it was good enough to gain entry to a foundation diploma.

The most useful piece of advice I was given prior to my interview was to only include pieces in your portfolio that you feel comfortable talking about, i.e. why did you include it?

      Thank you Galina and thanks for the heads up about the newsletter, you are still on the subscriber list so I think there must be a bug in the plugin, I have just reinstalled it so hopefully that will fix it but please let me know if it continues to be a problem.
