Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

This course will appeal to anyone fascinated by designed objects and the ways they shape our lives and express who we are. From rococo to mid-century modern, arts and crafts to post-modernism, this course looks at design and decorative arts from the past 300 years.

We’ll touch on architecture and art, explore major design movements and exhibitions and the influences which have helped shape fashion and interior design. You’ll discover how cultural, social, economic and technological changes have influenced design and you’ll find out more about the main design movements and figures but also the impact of popular culture and the role of women in design.

How will I learn?

You will gain knowledge about design and decorative arts from the 1800s up to the present day, with a particular emphasis on the 20th century. The course is delivered in a chronological timeframe so that students can appreciate how the visual arts have evolved over time.
There is no formal qualification with this course. You can participate at whatever level you feel comfortable with. Be prepared to take notes if you wish.  A reading list is provided each week.

The course will be delivered through weekly online lectures. This is a very visual course, so expect lots of images. You will also have the opportunity to get involved with a Q&A session each week.
