Students are expected to have achieved at least a Grade 6 or B in GCSE Design and Technology Textiles or Art and Design.
This course allows students the opportunity to explore a range of Textile media, techniques and processes. They will learn about both traditional and new technologies, along with looking at Cultural influences in Textiles Design. Students will develop their observational drawing and practical skills while investigating areas including Textiles Design, Constructed Textiles, Fashion, Printed and Dyed Textiles. The course has a strong practical element, which allows students to develop their own ideas and create a personal response.
The AS course allows students who have an interest in the world of Textile Design to develop a sound portfolio of work as well as a working knowledge of how textiles techniques can be used.
The A Level course then further develops and refines these areas of study for those who are interested in a possible career in the Design and Textile Industry.
