A Level Art Textiles

Art Textiles is an extremely interesting and stimulating course for students who enjoy Art and like working with Textiles creatively and experimentally. Constructed, dyed, printed and fashion textiles are key elements of the course which closely links to disciplines associated with fine Art. Students are expected to study the art of fine artists and designers to inform the development of their own work. This course also offers flexibility to students with a strong interest in fashion to specialise in this area. A high level of motivation and the ability to work hard are essential for studying this subject.

What can this course lead to?

This course will allow students to further their education at college or university in Textiles and other art disciplines. It can also lead to exciting job opportunities like, print, knit and weave textile design, fashion design, costume design, fashion illustration, fashion photography, fashion styling, trends and predictions, digital design, interior design, fashion retail and buying.
