Eastleigh College students recently graduated from their Foundation Degree in Stitched Textiles. Delighted students Cathy Fox, Caroline Bell, Louise Wainwright, Janet Steer and Alison Hulme attended the Graduation Ceremony in the impressive surroundings of Winchester Cathedral on 18th October 2013.
The students have been studying Stitched Textiles part-time at Eastleigh College for three years. The wide variety of modules on the degree have included drawing studies, technical skills, fabric and stitch, applied technical skills, contextual studies and professional practice. The students also hosted an impressive three day Stitched Textiles Summer Exhibition in July.Assessment was through practical tasks, reflective journals, research, essays and presentations.
Susan Chapman, Course Manager said "This has been an exceptional group of students who have been totally committed to the course with great results. They have each received a variety of professional opportunities already and the group as a whole have been awarded their own exhibition at the Autumn Textiles Shows in 2014."
The Foundation Degree in Stitched Textiles provides students with the confidence to develop their own practice, enabling them to either run their own studio or to go on to further study on a Bachelor of Arts course.
