Textile Design (Art Textiles) GCSE
Textile Design provides students with a range of creative, exciting and stimulating opportunities to explore. The course includes woven, knitted, stitched, printed, dyed, constructed, embellished or decorative textiles. Students develop their knowledge and understanding of areas as diverse as fashion design, costume design, surface pattern, digital textiles and installed textiles.
Textile Design is a very exciting and popular course as it involves so much variety and choice. Students are able to explore many different ways of expressing their ideas and enjoy experimenting with a wide range of materials and new techniques.
Each student is encouraged to work in an individual way and to develop their own personal style and approach. Inspiration is taken from different designers, both past and present.
It is also an excellent foundation for further study and opens up the possibility of numerous career opportunities. Past students have gone on to courses at The London College of Fashion, Chelsea and Central St Martin's Colleges of Art and have then had successful careers in areas such as Fashion Design, Textile Design, Surface Pattern Design, Television/Radio, Technical Effects, Costume Design, Film, Media Industries, Interior Design, Soft Furnishings, Television, and Theatre/Set Design.
Our students always say how much they develop knowledge, skills and understanding of textiles and designers in addition to developing as individuals.
