So we've been told by tutors we can draw anything using whatever techniques and art equipment we want but I don't know what to do. I've done a few drawings but now I'm stuck on what to do next. Any ideas?

Depends really, your post is kind of vague. Do you have a theme you want to do? Florals, vibrants, etc?

I went to art college and here's a example of what we'd include in our sketchbooks: photography, sketches, little snippets from magazines (inspiration), pictures from google images, little pieces of fabric, swatches, progress journalling, paintings, etc.

A really good place to look is YouTube, I do journalling and sketchbook stuff for fun and honestly, some of the people are so freaking talented it's crazy. It's good for giving you ideas even on layouts or how to make something interesting

I don't really have a theme but I've been using lots of circles without realising.

Why don't you try something your good at like sketching and then try something completely different like clay modelling?
So as an example, sketch out a drawing and then use clay to turn it in to 3D art.

Hey, I study Textile Design at the University of Derby!

Why don't you try giving yourself quick 5 minute exercises. Exercises could be drawing in a continuous line, blind drawing, drawing with the 'wrong hand', drawing with dipped objects in ink.. etc. May sound silly at first but some of these could be your best work!
