I came to The Henley College from Newlands Girls' School in Maidenhead. I chose this course due to it's wide basis of skills available. It has allowed me to discover the specialism I was interested in and to help me to learn what I wanted to do at university or as a career. The units and brief we were given helped to show us what it is like to work on different subjects from graphics to 3D and also to help understand the art world using live briefs. I chose this course as I wanted to be creative but to also achieve a good qualification. Doing a full time art course was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I have a place at the university of creative arts at Farnham and I am going to study glass, ceramics, metalwork and jewelry. In the future I hope to work in 3D crafts.
One of my favourite parts of this course has been the projects you do at the end of each year. In my first year we created our own brief based on a subject and this allowed us to research and experiment with the techniques we loved, mine being surface pattern. In our second year our final major project was created by us and was completely self motivated. This allowed us to really get into the project but to also push the boundaries.
