An exciting course which enables students to develop their knowledge of textiles through fashion or interior design projects. The syllabus includes 20th century design, fibres and fabrics, including smart fabrics, dyes and printing techniques, industrial practice, commercial manufacture, pattern making. CAD/CAM and ICT systems are studied and examined.
Students are able to expand their knowledge and creative skills through practically based coursework.
Various forms of assessment include written work, research and practical making. At AS there is a portfolio of coursework which incorporates a range of projects, and a final examination paper. At A2 there is a further coursework project and a final synoptic written examination, based on the two years’ study.
