100% A*-B (2022)
A-Level Textile Design is essential if you wish to undertake further study in the same discipline at College or University, or for those students looking to take up a career in the general field of Art and Design.
Career choices range from fashion, apparel and textile design, theatre, film and costume design, interior design, conservation, fashion illustration, fashion buying, fashion styling, fashion merchandising, public relations, textile technology, pattern cutting and grading, millinery, tailoring and upholstery, education, freelance work and self-employment.
Many students in the department choose the already established creative subjects like Art, Photography and Graphic Design and apply directly to universities bypassing the Foundation Diploma stage.
The course is orientated towards the creative fine art side of the Textile sphere of subjects. Therefore, students will be given the opportunity to pursue different specialisms such as stitching, printing, drawing, 3 dimensional garment construction, textile sculpture and fabric manipulation. This will be accompanied by digital techniques such as the use of photography and computer aided design, where appropriate.
