Year 7 Textiles
Throughout year 7, students have been designing and creating a range of children’s soft toys, based on a well-known ‘childhood adventure’ character. Students were asked to incorporate a smart material into their design, whilst providing some educational element to the product. Over the year, students have produced a range of imaginative ideas, which meet the needs of their chosen client.
Year 8 Textiles
Students have been busy creating their ‘festival’ themed bags. Students have developed a repeated pattern using CAD and then printed the pattern using Dye Sublimation. Throughout the unit, students developed a range of skills, including how to use the sewing machine, how to use CAD in Textiles and how to adapt a pattern based on the needs of the client. Students have produced a range of multi-use bags suitable for someone attending a festival.
Year 9 Textiles
Students in year 9 Textiles, have created a range of ‘upcycled ’decorative cushions, inspired by a well-known artist or designer. Students have explored how the Textile industry effects the environment and how we can promote a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way of making and purchasing our clothes. Students re-used old clothes to create a range of original and unique cushions, which meet the needs of the client.
