Textiles

This is a new course for 2012 and will use a variety of ‘design & make’ projects covering clothing, interior textiles and toys to develop a range of skills throughout Year 10 to include:

  • Use of CAD/CAM, both to make & design products
  • Building simple interactive electronics to incorporate into Textile products
  • Product construction & manufacture
  • History of textiles/ clothing manufacture & fashion design
  • Investigating innovative, Smart & traditional textiles including materials testing,
  • Medical/military & future applications
  • The uses and effects of sustainable/recycled materials

Pupils will then have a solid basis to enable them to design and produce an in-depth coursework folder to support their final project in Year 11.
