Art and the Environment with Floral Design - Writtle University College

This course has been designed to allow the freedom to explore current aesthetic, political, cultural and environmental issues with the understanding that the studio extends beyond the indoor space. Employability has been designed into the course to prepare students for a working life in a full range of creative practices. The course will enable students to develop an individual approach and engender the required excellence to successfully become a creative professional. The Art and the Environment with Floral Design programme aims to provide an interdisciplinary approach to the study of floral design and art both in theory and practice, allied to knowledge of a range of related creative activities. A key aspect of the course is the opportunity for students to direct their learning towards personal interests and vocational aspirations, engendering increasing independence and self- reliance in preparation for lifelong reskilling and occupational resilience. This course is designed to reflect contemporary working realities in the creative industries by valuing and engaging with established practices, whilst also encouraging exploration of innovative ways of working across traditional discipline boundaries. The course seeks to look outwards from the start, having a clear focus on the world of employment from the beginning and explores the unique opportunities given to the study of design by its location within a land-based institution. The course is aimed at anyone with an interest in working within the creative industries or in a creative department. No specific floristry background is required. The course is aimed at anyone with an interest in environmental and sustainability issues and would like to comment on these in a creative way. Students can also undertake the course in order to teach in schools, adult education and creative outreach projects. Students could progress onto this course having gained Level 3 qualifications, ‘A’ Levels, or equivalents, in a combination of creative subjects for example: floristry, art and design, fine art, photography, design communication, painting, interior design, textiles, fashion, film making, etc. Increasingly within the sector, mature students join a Level 4 Design course having applied as part of a career change, or to pursue a longstanding interest in the creative arts.
