Sixth Form Textiles

Sixth Form Textiles

 Year 12

Year 12- BTEC students taking level 3 textiles can expect a range of introductory projects which will aim to develop and refine practical skills. One of the units allows students to develop their visual recording skill using 2D techniques such as drawing, painting, collages, printing, paper manipulation, lamination, etc. This is followed by a similar skills based project in which students develop their understanding of materials, techniques and processes in textiles. This involves a lot of practical workshops in which students will produce samples and reflect on the outcomes produced. These two projects are excellent for helping to build confidence and for increasing awareness of techniques. This helps for those students who have not taken textiles at level 2 and also helps to refine skills for those who have. Towards the end of year 12 students will begin a project based on one of the optional units provided by BTEC. This is often done in negotiation with the students to best use the skills and ideas of the class. The units are all textile based and culminate in a final piece of the students choosing based on a specific source of inspiration. This project will continue into year 13.

Year 13

In year 13 students will initially complete their final pieces for the project they started before the summer holidays during their year 12 study. Following the completion of this project, students will take part in 2 additional projects which will each involve research, 2D visual recording, sampling, designs and a final piece. The projects will be based on the units provided by BTEC but will be selected based on the skills and interests of the group. Projects in the past have included a felting project based on natural forms and a surface pattern project based on marine life.
