Fashion and Textiles at Teddington School
Do you have dreams of making your own clothes and accessories or developing a fashion line of your own? Do you have a creative flair? Whether you are designing dresses or editing a fashion spread for next season’s latest trends, the study of fashion and textiles tells the story of who we are through the clothes we wear. If you have a passion for fashion, an artistic mind and can visualise your ideas then this is the course for you. The most important attribute is a love of creativity, experimentation and a desire to spend hours making things.
Students should be introduced to a variety of experiences that explore a range of textile media, processes and techniques. They should be made aware of both traditional and new media. Students should explore the use of drawing for different purposes, using a variety of methods and media on a variety of scales. Students should explore the potential for the use of colour. Students may use sketchbooks/workbooks/journals to underpin their work where appropriate. Students should explore relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to a range of art, craft and design, from the past and from recent times, including European and non-European examples. This should be integral to the investigating and making processes. Students' responses to these examples must be shown through practical and critical activities that demonstrate their understanding of different styles, genres and traditions.
