A very satisfying outcome–now back to work!

_DSF2240

The results were released last week and I’m very pleased with the outcome on both this and the Contextual Studies module. I’m especially pleased that the ‘Textbook’ project has been very well-received and that the resulting artefact (the new, reconstructed textbook, returned to its original covers) is described in the feedback as having “gravitas”, being “engaging, compelling and challenging” but also as “very beautiful in its own right”.  Those words feel at least as satisfying as the mark I got, if not more so. As this blog has recorded, I’ve been aware that I’ve been doing something that felt significantly different, and you’re never sure where that might lead or whether others will appreciate the work. It’s a risk. I’m delighted that the assessors seem to have ‘got it’ and to have appreciated what I was doing. It’s very satisfying.

However, that’s enough trumpet-blowing!! There’s work to do and a standard to maintain. I’ve been busy extending the work within ‘Sustaining Your Practice’, for which I have a separate blog, here; and I need to find a route to take this work to an audience.  This will be the final post to this blog – ‘many thanks’ to those who have followed and supported; ‘thanks’ also to my tutors.
