Art - Textiles at Peter Symonds College

Course description

The scope of the course is broad and an emphasis is placed on looking at the world around us as a source of inspiration for visual design and artwork. Developing artistic and design skills and exploring the use of textile processes and materials to create a range of expressive and interpretative practical work are central to the course. The aim is to develop your creativity, technical skill, knowledge and understanding of both contemporary practice in textiles and the diverse cultural and historical background that this is rooted in. We are committed to helping students develop their own style of work over the AS and A2 course.

Entry requirements
