Welcome to Textiles

Textiles is the second biggest industry in the world and one every country needs to survive. Through learning about Textiles students will understand the global, economic, environmental and ecological impact it has and the importance of this within society.

Fashion and Textiles connects directly to decisions in the home, clothing and footwear. We also build awareness of how medical advances and performance requirements lead to smart textiles.

Students use a combination of Art and Textiles to bring their thinking into creative, practical, conceptual and innovative ideas. This enables students to develop a board range of skills, including research and investigation, planning, designing and making.
