Gwyn enjoyed her Love2Learn courses so much, she is now undertaking a Part Time Art & Design Foundation Course. We caught up with Gwyn to ask about how she found her courses, and how she felt about winning the Love2Learn Student of the Year.
What course did you study at Bath College?
I studied Sculpture and Ceramics.
What was the most enjoyable aspect of your course?
The most enjoyable part was learning to use different materials, as well as developing and experimenting with new techniques. You surprise yourself at the things you can make.
What did you do on your courses that you felt was most valuable?
I think gaining the confidence to try new ideas and make bigger and better objects has been the most valuable lesson.
What made you apply to Bath College?
I hadn’t done anything for years, and after visiting some galleries in Madrid I knew I had to do something in Art! So I applied.
What are you doing now?
I am now doing an Art and Design Foundation course part time over the next two years.
What piece of advice would you give to students’ looking to enrol on a leisure course?
Just give it a go! It opens up a Pandora’s box of wonders to learn and delight you!
How do you feel about winning the Love2Learn Student of the Year Award?
I am absolutely over the moon about it! I never imagined I could reach such dizzy heights!
