Colourful GCSE textile creations

Our GCSE design and technology textiles pupils have just finished their final garment designs – and we think they are fabulous! The brief was to design something that was either Asian-influenced or used recycled textiles.  Here are Kelly and Maisie with their dresses.

Creative seaside cushions

Year 8 have been busy in their textiles lessons using decorative techniques to make beach-themed cushions. These include resist-dye methods  (tie-dye and batik), embellishing, appliqué and fancy machine stitches.  They should be very proud of the results!

Creative seaside cushions

During their textiles lessons last term Year 8 designed a cushion based on a beach/seaside theme. They learnt various decorative techniques such as tie-dye, appliqué, machine decorative stitches, hand embroidery and embellishing.

They have worked really hard to produce a wonderfully creative piece over a ten week unit.

Well done Year 8!
