I have very much enjoyed my course. I have learned many skills and found my inner-maker. However, until the show was up today I have not honestly thought that I could make a living of it. Today, after having finished setting up for the exhibition, and most importantly having met the deadline, I am excited about the opportunities this might bring for me as a maker. I have started looking for jobs in areas related to my practice: glass, sustainability and cement.
I think it is a confidence thing. Before coming to university I had not had much experience. Apart from visiting galleries and museums, and occasionally undergoing DIY projects in my spare time.
These three years have suddenly gone past so fast that I have to stop and recap. Cannot believe I have made it here!
I have had some great opportunities of self expansion, I have met some great people and been surrounded by extremely qualified and helpful lecturers and technicians.
Currently getting ready for the Monday presentation…
