How To Apply

Before your application to one of these pathways can be considered, you will have to attend a paid consultation to establish weather this is the correct direction for you to take and for me to ascertain your suitability for the program.

2Hr Consultation:

Before being accepted onto a pathway you must book a consultation.

This consultation can take the form of a portfolio review (of existing work) if you have no work at this stage (or the work shown does not meet expectations) you will need to complete an agreed set project to be presented at a further interview before being accepted as a student on the 5-session program.

Note: During your consultation you will also be offered frank opinion and profession advice regarding intended creative journey.
