During this one-year GCSE course, you will research to find out about the work of Textile Artists, draw out your ideas and develop these to produce a Textile product either a household item, wall hanging or fashion item. This course will allow you to demonstrate your creativity, knowledge of materials and technical making skills. Drawing activities and annotations about the work are compulsory. Work will need to be well presented in a sketchbook and mounted onto boards which will be annotated to explain your ideas.
You will complete two coursework projects and then an exam, which you will have a few weeks to prepare for; researching, generating ideas and producing a final piece within ten hours in the Textile room.
