Is your part of the joint project mainly based on your own spontaneous ideas, or research?

I would say it’s based on some research into artists with different techniques and then my own creative imagination making the experiments/ ideas.

How many new making methods did you learn?

The aim with this final project for me was to explore lots of new workshops so I signed up to as many as I could. CNC, 3D print, Sculpture and 3D textiles manipulation. My favoured workshop was sculpture, due to the success in my new plastering skills.

How did you find working collaboratively?

I found it helpful to share the roles equally for the project. It helped save some time and we seemed to work well like clock work. We had fun and kept high spirits up whilst experimenting and coming up with more ideas.

How did you find working collaboratively?

Teamwork helped split the whole project into individual tasks. Working together gave us the chance to have a more elaborated project, try new and more techniques/materials.

Is your part of the joint project mainly based on your own spontaneous ideas, or research?

Spontaneous ideas, mainly part of our passions/interests.

What was the most successful part of the project?

The collaboration.
