Description: These sessions are for those with some experience of the studio procion techniques. Students will work on their own projects with mentoring and advice provided, but this is not a structured course. It consists of ten one day sessions held over one year. There are no sessions in January or August, and the July session is a week later, the second Friday in the month because Eastleigh College End of Year show falls on the first weekend in July.
Experience level: Intermediate
Class fees: If you sign up for Independent DAM, you are committed to attending and paying for all ten sessions. A deposit is paid on registration and payment can be spread over the whole year, but, if you miss a session you are still expected to pay for it and we will try to provide a catch up session elsewhere in our timetable. So, please take careful note of the session dates.
The cost of the course is £500 with a deposit of £50 being taken to secure your place, and £50 being paid at each session, with the final session being already paid for by deposit. The session fee includes the teaching, the use of the studio, tools, dyes, chemicals etc.
Class size: Limited to 4 students, to provide enough space per student to facilitate their own projects
Dates: classes will take place mainly on 1st Sun in the month, none in January or August but there a couple of adjustments because of prior commitments, so please make a note of the dates carefully to avoid disappointment… Dates are as follows
