In Textiles, students have the opportunity to be experimental, creative and innovative working both individually and as part of a term in a challenging and successful subject area. The projects give opportunities to all abilities and genders. The work allows progression, giving the opportunity to experiment using a wide variety of surface decoration, construction techniques and the use of fabrics. Students will be taught how to draw & present ideas, textile terminology, how to make paper patterns and prototypes.
Year 7 Pop Art – experimental artwork piece to be displayed as part of an exhibition.
