Textiles with Fashion A Level at Cleveland College of Art and Design
This course is aimed at students who are interested in a career in textile and fashion design. This gives them the opportunity to express themselves through functional or decorative manipulation of materials and fabrics.
Students will learn from the work of practising textile and fashion designers, exploring textile and fashion specialisms such as print, knit, weave, macramé, embroidery, embellishment and moulage. Students can then develop these techniques into either textile installation, constructed textiles, product or develop a fashion outcome.
Tutors are fully qualified practitioners and will help students to experiment with textile and fashion techniques. Each assignment theme is open to allow each individual student to develop a unique and personal response to each project with either a textile or a fashion outcome. Students will work in a professional studio environment where students will discover how to produce both exciting and innovative design work.
A wide range of assignments covering both practical and theoretical topics as well as industry standards and conventions.
Five GCSEs at A*-B and maths and English minimum C grade.
On successful completion of the course students will have the skills and qualifications needed to progress onto a wide range of courses at foundation or degree level, or to go directly into industry
