In Art – Textiles you will explore colour, texture and imagery using traditional and unconventional materials. Our well-equipped specialist studio allows you to work with a wide range of processes in real depth. Developing themes from your own personal experiences and observations, investigating ideas and researching the work of other artists and designers, you will be taught by experienced supportive tutors who are also practising textiles artists whose work is shown nationally and internationally
From common starting points, you progress in individual directions. In the second half of Year Two, an externally set assignment gives you the opportunity to demonstrate all your creative abilities. Examples of project titles include 'Lost & Found' 'Deep Rooted' and 'Faded Glories'.
