Art and Design: Textiles A level at Burnley College

Course description

Art and Design: Textiles is an exciting and dynamic course for anyone with artistic aptitude and determination to explore students’ creative boundaries. The course provides an imaginative grounding in the development processes and techniques within Textiles.

The emphasis of the course will be focused on developing students’ creativity and research skills as well as their appreciation of Textiles. The versatility required when working as a Textile Artist is reflected in the course, where students will learn to work with a huge range of materials and textures.

During the course students will produce a Personal Study.

In the A2 year of the course students will develop the skills learned during the AS year.
