* Supplement, circular, news clippings, proposals, schedule
* The Student News Sheets (SMARTs) were all acquired the year after I'd graduated. I was living and working in London and still had numerous friends and acquaintances at the College so I revisited it on number of occasions and must have picked them up then. The article in SMART No. 3 titled "Questions of Sculpture 73/74" is interesting as it addresses some of the grave misgivings my Year Group had regarding the assessment of our practical work for our final Diploma show. We hadn't been formally assessed whilst on the 'A' Course and given the course's nature many of us had begun to work in media (such as film and/or video) and in ways (installation, process, conceptual, performance) that were far removed from what was then orthodox sculptural practice. To suddenly have our work assessed by members of staff who were mainly from the 'B' Course - and who were, we felt, not particularly disposed to our way of working was anathema. It is I think fair to say that most of us were opposed to grading, anyway. As noted by Andrew Darley, 7/1/2015.
