Year 10 Textiles

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Teague-Schellekens.

Year 10 Textiles is a semester-long course

Textiles follows a design and technology approach, developing your creativity, imagination, a sense of accomplishment, and personal satisfaction. Throughout the course, you will work on design briefs you've developed, allowing you to design and craft items of your choice. 

This journey will equip you with the necessary skills to work with a wide range of materials, techniques and incorporate embellishments, which you may draw inspiration from your own cultural backgrounds, including techniques like printing, dyeing, screen printing, embroidery, weaving and appliqué.

Your initial task will focus on familiarising yourself with the machinery, equipment, and techniques essential for producing successful, personally satisfying creations. You'll also be introduced to some "tricks of the trade" that can simplify the processes you learn, enhancing your chances of achieving remarkable results.

It is a great initiation for Level 1 Textiles (Materials and Processing Technology) and onwards.
