I missed Induction Day this autumn (2003) for Level 2 students. Would anyone be kind enough to let me read their notes on the talks given that day?
Is anyone else from group D planning to take part in Jane Watts' professional practise workshop in November? Sounded interesting at induction day. It would be lovely to meet some other students who are at (roughly!)the same stage of the degree course while learning how to get our ideas out of sketchbooks and into galleries!
Can anyone help me get back into the swing of things? I have just begun Personal Specialism Level One having been away from the pracical modules for some time. I would like to talk to anyone who is studying the same module or anyone who has just completed it - please get in touch
Copies of "Whole Cloth" by M. Constantine & L. Reuter are on sale at Bookthrift in South Kensington ( near to the Underground station ) at £9.99.
If your looking to have small quantities of postcards printed I can recommend this company 'PRINTUK.COM' Postcards can be ordered as little as 10 to 50 or more cards, at resonable prices. I have just recieved mine in just over the week so their quick and the quality is great.
Just one word of warning the proofs are sent via E-mail unless otherwise stated.
I am considering enrolling in the B.A.(Hons)Embroidered Textiles Program this year from here in Canada. I will be in London for about a month during February, is there anyone who is presently taking this course who would be able to give me personal information and guidance about it.
Books For Students!!
As we come to the end of a module, don't forget to send me a list of any books you've now finished with and could lend or sell to another student.
If you need any books for your next module why not see if you can save money by getting them from another student.
amazon has "The Whole Cloth" book for £9.99
a real bargin, it should be on your xmas list.
Recoommended Exhibitions - London
Versace @ V&A; - brilliant, theatrical, loads of over the top ideas, good feature a number of the costumes can be handled.
Aztecs @ RA - this really gets under your skin - it is not often an exhibition feels foreign - but this does. Lots of information, great display and lighting.
I am a member of both V&A; and RA if anyone comes to London on a Saturday I would be happy to meet up and go to either the above again - as a member I and a guest get in free - jumping the queues

Are the monthly meetings in London still happening? Please could someone let me know where/when the next one is?
