Textile Art - AS / A Level at St Alban's Catholic High School

Course description

This course is suitable for those prepared to complete extensive, consistent coursework.

It is a chance to extend your skills and to learn more about textiles as a form of Art. Both

AS and A Level are split into two projects. Component 1 is a personal investigation and

Component 2 externally set by the exam board. Throughout the course you will be

expected to keep a portfolio and work towards a theme. You will be involved in a variety

of practical lessons which build on existing knowledge and also new methods of surface

decoration. The end result for each unit is determined by the student and the sketch book

is required to ‘tell a story’ of how the product has been designed and created. The course

covers a wide range of Textile areas and will be open to your own interpretation as you

develop your studies. You will investigate various print techniques, learn how to make and

adapt blocks, methods of image transfer, embellishment of cloth and 3D textiles.

Future opportunities

This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to progress to college/university, pursue a

career in the fashion, design/textile industry or those who are keen on embellishment

and who are creative.
