Why study Art & Design Textiles?
If you have enjoyed the making and experimental side of Design & Technology textiles but also enjoy the creative side of Art & Design, then this is the subject for you.

What will I study?
During the Art & Design Textiles GCSE course you will produce a number of projects. This is both sketch book type experimental work and a final piece. This counts for 60% of the marks.
The exam at the end counts for 40% of the total mark. This is undertaken over two days in the textile area producing a piece of textile work.

The projects will involve you experimenting with different types of textile techniques such as free machine embroidery.

You will also look at the work of other artists and develop your own ideas based on their work.

We develop our work through sketchbooks and the majority of the course is based on practical work with lots of design and making. Some written work is required to explain how the work has been developed.

You will produce coursework at home to complement your work in class.
