Choose textiles because it is a unique and creative subject, where you can explore methods, materials and techniques in exciting and imaginative ways. Having enjoyed textiles at Key Stage 3, it is the ideal opportunity to refine your skills and explore your own creativity. You will create a portfolio of work that contains a wide variety of 2D and 3D work.
You will be given the opportunity to work independently, with support and guidance, to create textiles that are impressive and fun to make.
There is time for you to develop your initiative, problem solving and design skills – all essential and transferable skills.
By taking textiles at GCSE you will begin a journey to discover your creative style and interests. Studying textiles could lead onto A level Art & Design, further textiles qualifications and beyond.
