About the course

If you've done Art or Textiles at GCSE level and really want to develop your research and practical textiles skills, this hands-on course is the one for you. Learn about artists and designers while exploring textiles techniques and creating your own designs.


5/C in English Language; 5/C or above in GCSE Art and Design or art and design related subject. 

This practical design course takes a broad experimental approach to a range of textiles practices including dye, print, digital, stitch and embellishment. Through a series of creative projects you learn how to develop ideas by engaging with drawing and research, how to create textiles samples and realize your ideas into final outcomes. Learning about artists, designers and textiles from diverse cultures will underpin your independent projects and trips to exhibitions will inspire your ideas.

Final assessment is made up of 60% coursework and a 40% externally set assignment.
