Textile Design Offered at A Level

It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce that from September 2019 we will be introducing Textile Design as a new A Level subject option. There is real excitement within the Creative Arts department that students hoping to follow a career in the Fashion or Textiles industry will now be able to develop their specialist knowledge and skills beyond GCSE and prepare more fully for applications to a Textiles related degree at university and exciting career opportunities. Students will be required to work in one or more area(s) of textile design which will include: • fashion design • fashion textiles • costume design • digital textiles • printed and/or dyed fabric and materials • domestic textiles and wallpaper • interior design • constructed textiles • art textiles • installed textiles
