I have prepared a Plan of Action based on my Tutor’s Formative Feedback on Part 5.
ACTION PLAN for Revised Assignment Five
Learning Log (Tutor: overall well organised and I demonstrate the ability to take on information and learn from it). However Tutor points out I need to put some of my new knowledge into practice.
- More reflective thinking on my own output.
- For example collage sample – Tutor advises my questioning attitude excellent but I need to add some answers.
Action 1: Further develop collage samples in Part 5.2 – analyse, reflect and document outputs. Add some answers!
- Took risks in the materials and techniques in initial sampling in Part 5 but did not write up extensively.
- Look at each sample and write not only what I did but what I thought of the results (shape, colour etc) which will help me to see what worked well and what can be taken forward. Remember to reflect on my work in progress and document well in my Learning Log. This critical reflection is structured, focused and conscious thought with an end person(Stella Cottrell). So my reflection of my samples is designed to assist me to produce interesting, experimental and impressive textiles.
Action 2: Following my Formative Feedback I have decided to redo my samples for 5.3 Experimenting and taking risks. Undertake detailed critical reflection as I progress through samples. Do far more samples, less techniques more focused go in deeper be innovative see potential have a framework for carrying out Action 2. A framework or system will help me to focus (I have problem with this which is obvious when you see how many different techniques I have used but only superficially) define and consider my work.
Research (Tutor: have started my analysis of my research with Holmes and Lyddon but in Assignment Five I have been giving general information on Artists selected).
- Need to revisit some of my artists in Part 5 and write down what I see and what I think of work.
ACTION 3: Revisit some of the artists in Part 5 and analyse and evaluate in more detail as suggested by Tutor.
- Tutor commented that if using print as one of my processes it is really important that I have a large body of expressive sketches to draw from.
ACTION 4: Do far far more printing samples which will help me to have a wide choice to take forward into final textile samples. Part 5.3.
Engagement with Textile Techniques(Tutor: Noted she had only seen my textile samples digitally. Liked my colour palette and saw variety in my compositions and noted that there is evidence I have pulled together things I have learnt from previous assignments to create the work.)
- But my work lacks as noted by Tutor because I have not analysed my early sampling fully.
ACTION 5: Do another more developed Textile capsule collection with the aim of creating innovative and exciting work.
