Textiles AS level at Edmonton County School
If students are creative, persistent and can use their initiative, AS Textiles is a practical course that can open up the students’ potential.

Students must show evidence in one or more of the areas of study (Fashion design/textiles, costume, digital textiles, printed/dyed fabrics and materials, domestic textiles, wallpaper, interior design, constructed and installed textiles)
AS Textiles is designed to encourage a broad approach to Textiles.
