Textiles Art & Design

A Level

Board: AQA

Art Textiles is a busy two year course working in sketchbooks, and on boards, and making three to four finished outcomes. The course is Art based, but with a Textiles twist, that allows you to explore a wide range of materials and processes resulting in fully made pieces that could be wearable or sculptural.

You will be encouraged to visit interesting places and develop modern and historic processes, whilst using a wide range of equipment, in order to design, decorate and make unique and individual fabrics and products. It’s a lot of artistic fun!
