Head of Department Overview Video - Textiles
Art Textiles is an exciting, creative subject that mixes drawing skills with a series of new textiles techniques.
What will you do?
Through a series of short, themed projects, you will develop an understanding of how fabrics are manipulated and the ways in which textile materials are used in design and construction. You will be taught various methods of fabric enhancement so that you can select the techniques you think are most suitable for products you will design.
Over the two years, you will build up a portfolio of work and a supporting sketchbook, which is Component 1 and is worth 60%.
In Year 11 there will also be a 10 hour exam (over two days) which you will prepare well for in advance. This is Component 2.
