A Level Textiles

Do you love the tactile qualities of stitch and fabric? Do you enjoy drawing and visualising your ideas through a hands-on approach to materials?

Back to Art & Design

The Textiles course encourages you to explore the breadth of approaches available within contemporary textiles today, developing your skills in stitched, printed and constructed textile processes.

Starting by exploring stitch (both hand and machine) as a drawing medium, you will build a comprehensive textiles vocabulary to help you find your own voice within the subject. Workshops are structured to familiarise yourself with different techniques including: appliqué, soluble fabrics, heat reactive materials, weaving, fabric manipulation, screen printing, collagraph printing, and repeat pattern design. We will also explore how contemporary and historic textile makers communicate ideas. 

Where will it take me?

You can progress directly to a wide range of degree courses in preparation for a career in textiles, fashion or interior design.
