We've been putting out thinking caps on in the office this morning - our 'big idea' is to work at least 12 months ahead and devise a 'calender' of events which will be mainly online so that all students and other facebookers with an interest in textiles can join in, even if they live miles away from the centre or are in another country. These will then be made into a download and can be viewed from our site.
We've been toying with the idea of awarding a bursary each year which will completely pay for either a certificate or diploma student to complete their studies with us and had thought of running a competition of some sort to award it. Whatever the competition or challenge for this was it could become one of the events for the year.
Other ideas were to include an open day at the same time as the annual exhibition for this who were near the centre to visit and view at the same time as speaking with the tutors and we'd also like to include at least one of the events for a charitable cause..............mmmm. Lots to think about! If you have any unusual/innovative ideas, then please do drop me a line. I'd love to get your input
