Art and Design: Textiles A level at Sir Bernard Lovell School
The specification allows students to cover a broad range of techniques, materials and processes including surface decoration, dye methods, felt and silk paper making, hand and machine embroidery and a variety of mixed media textiles.
Students are encouraged to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in a more individual and creative way by studying and responding critically to the work of artists and textile artists. This work is further developed in the second year of study by experimenting with and combining a range of textile techniques around a theme of the student’s own choice, plus a written related study of up to 3,000 words.
For students who wish to go straight into employment, it could lead to Retail Management training. A route via Higher Education could include Art Foundation, an HND or a Degree course. This could include areas such as costume design, interior design, fashion and business courses, fashion and textile design, knitwear/ footwear etc.
