I came to The Henley College from Bourne End Academy. I chose this course because I was intrigued by the work students had produced in previous years which, I saw when I visited the summer exhibitions. I personally thought it was going to be a subject I would drop, however it has become a subject I am going to pursue as a degree. In September I will be going to Central Saint Martins to study fashion and textiles. I then hope to go onto do a fashion design degree.
I enjoyed the interaction with my tutor Claire, her advice and experience was invaluable and has really helped me progress within my work. The hands on work that makes up a majority of the course gives you the freedom to explore whatever you want.
