I’ve completed my E-Portfolio for two universities- Chelsea College of Arts and Central Saint Martins. Their requirements for BA Textiles were similar, except Chelsea wanted 15 images, and CSM wanted only 10.

Their requirements:

  • Visual research in colour and black & white using a variety of media e.g. drawing, photography, collage etc.
  • Evidence of an interest in surfaces, textural qualities and mixed media
  • Evidence of design orientated research – not necessarily textiles
  • Awareness of a contemporary context and ideas
  • An individual response to ideas and critical awareness showing your design development process
  • Evidence of an enthusiasm for colour, variety of scale, sketchbooks
  • Larger scale work can be represented through photographs
  • A concise portfolio indicating a selective approach
  • Ability to present critical reflection of the subject in discussion if called for interview

What went well:

  • Uploading the portfolio a day earlier than the deadline
  • Much more confidence in using Adobe Indesign and Photoshop
  • Photographing artwork
  • Establishing all the requirements needed from the universities
  • Very happy with the portfolio!

What could be improved:

  • Time management- falling behind a lot on the current project because of editing the images, but I was also struggling on Adobe as it was my first time using it
  • The slides had too many images at first- did not leave enough white space to read the images, but this was fixed due to Claire and Lucy’s guidance

The E-Portfolio: 

I also added my animation from the 3D exploratory project:


Once submitted, I was notified that I will hear from the universities by 14th February.
