How will I be assessed or graded?
We want you to gain your chosen technique. Braiding is a hands on skill where prove of expertise can be seen. We start by giving you practical demonstration on how to achieve your chosen technique/s. You are then asked to practice what you have witnessed. We watch what you have done and if we notice that you have not yet picked up the technique, we continue to demonstrate it until you become confident. We maintain a close look at your work until you master it fully and become competent. You continue your task until completion of your style on the mannequin head. This ensures your problems and questions are addressed as you work your way to completion of the task. Assessment therefore is through discussions, questions and by watching you practically demonstrate your skill. You are also encouraged to create a portfolio of your work as you go into business. We encourage you to bring in a live model – maybe a relative – and braid your favorite design on their head. We then support and supervise the project.
