Textiles (Art and Design)
A Level Textiles (Art & Design) - AQA
What will I study?
Art Textiles is a creative and inspiring 2 year course working in sketchbooks, and on boards, and making 3 to 4 finished outcomes. The course is Art based, but with a Textiles twist, that allows you to explore a wide range of materials, processes and techniques accumulating in fully made pieces that could be wearable or sculptural. The course is practical and requires personal investigation on given themes, where you explore and develop ideas through textiles.
You will be encouraged to visit interesting places and develop modern and historic processes, whilst using a wide range of equipment, in order to design, decorate and make unique and individual fabrics and products. It’s a lot of artistic fun!
