KS3 Textiles



A creative and fun set of lessons that look at the work of artists and textile designers and using their work to inspire our own.

How will I be assessed?

We will look at both the quality of our art and textiles work and also our written recording. Students will be expected to work hard and be creative.

How does this subject prepare students for GCSE option choice in year 9?

It gives students a brief insight into what the course will be like in Year 9 and beyond, using their creative, and problem solving skills to the best effect. Studying the work of other creatives and being inspired by them to create personal work.

What extra-curricular opportunities are available for this subject and what can I do at home to challenge myself?

Practicing drawing and mark making at home will help to develop skills. If you have a family member who sews or knits, or have access to a sewing machine get them to show you the techniques they use.
