In textiles students are able to use fabrics to up-cycle items or to design and make projects. There are a vast range of different skills that can be learnt in this subject from using the sewing machines to dyeing fabrics, and from felting to applique and the projects are chosen to fit the interests of the class.
Over the summer and autumn terms students have designed and decorated tote bags, tie and dyed t-shirts, made cushions in the shape and pattern of their choice and are now working on fabric painting a pillow case for their bed.
All fabrics and equipment is supplied so that all students have the same opportunity to learn and enjoy the subject.
Some students even managed to complete a Christmas stocking in time for the 25th!
