Teaching and learning
A practical syllabus, the course examines the scientific, creative and artistic aspects of design and textiles, with plenty of opportunities for learners to apply what they have learnt by demonstrating their investigative, creative, and practical skills. Through the study of fibres and fabrics, learners find out about basic design, contemporary fashion, clothing manufacture and the use of commercial patterns to make a variety of garments.
Learners go on to explore textile applications and technology, looking at issues such as fitness for purpose, creative techniques, the application of colour, and environmental impact. They also study the making and finishing of textile products, the care of clothing, and the use and care of a sewing machine.
