Art Textiles*

Fine Art Textiles is a perfect way for students wishing to extend and develop their Art and Textiles skills from GCSE, studied in a more independent way and to greater depth. Throughout the course students will expand and develop their existing skills and explore a variety of traditional and experimental techniques to produce outcomes that range from textiles products, garments and textile art. Students will be encouraged to develop their work independently based upon their individual interests and the brief assigned to them. The course will be enriched with opportunities for observational drawing, life drawing, and gallery visits. The course encourages students to recognise the need to communicate and express ideas visually and to be able to project plan and problem solve. Skills which are desired in all professions.
