My response:

I worked hard to demonstrate progression of my ideas through sketchbook and sampling to finished piece, so I’m glad that my tutor recognised this in my submission. Once again, she also commented on my developing creative voice, which I am delighted is apparent within my work.

The main learning point from my final assignment is not to be frightened about working intuitively. My tutor recognised it as having the advantage of making sure my piece was not too tight or fixed in expectations. Although I naturally tend to find uncertainty unsettling, I need learn to be more relaxed and see the strengths and benefits of a flexible, intuitive approach.

My tutor correctly identified the importance of sketchbooks to me as part of the creative process and suggested that I draw regularly. She also highlighted some particularly effective stitched samples within the sketchbook which have possibilities for further development using different materials and layering.

There was a suggestion that I should present my samples in a presentation box for assessment. I am in the process of making a presentation frame/box for this purpose.
