Exploring creativity in Textiles

Exploring creativity in Textiles

The Textiles world is all around us and today’s designer has to be imaginative, creative and intuitive. 

Textiles @ North enables students to understand and apply iterative design processes through which they explore, create and evaluate various outcomes.  

Students develop an awareness of decorative and constructive practices from the creative, engineering and manufacturing industries. Through the critique of the outcomes of design and technology activity, both historic and present-day, students should develop an understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world and understand that high-quality design and technology is important to the creativity, culture, sustainability, wealth and wellbeing of the nation and the global community.  

A final prototype could be a highly-finished product, made as proof of concept before manufacture, or working scale models of a system where a full-size product would be impractical 

From KS3 to KS5 it is so rewarding to see how the students develop and progress with their talent.
