Textile Design

Tab 1

Introduction

At KS3 our curriculum has been devised to teach students the skills necessary to achieve at KS4. All projects within the Creative Faculty have a basis in drawing from observation, we then build upon this essential skill by introducing a wide range of techniques to both stimulate the students and prepare them for KS4. Within Textiles we cover skills such as hand stitching, embroidery techniques, machine sewing, felting, 3-D textiles, dying and printed textile design. Our projects are linked to IAG and within them we incorporate SMSC.

KS3

Year 7

Theme – Fragments. Pupils are introduced to the idea of working to a theme as will be expected of them at ks4. Year 7 will undertake two main projects during the year which are subdivided into smaller projects, each of which are skills or technique based. The first is linked to healthy eating with a felted fruit outcome and the second is looking at fragments of nature with an embroidered leaf brooch outcome.

 

Year 8

Theme – Layers. Year 8 will undertake two main projects during the year which are subdivided into smaller projects, each of which are skills or technique based. The first is looking at natural forms with an outcome created by printing and embroidering a layered seashell design. The second is based upon junk food with an embroidered felt cupcake outcome.

 

Year 9

Theme – Celebrations. Year 9 will undertake two main projects during the year which are subdivided into smaller projects, each of which are skills or technique based. The first is looking at birds and their plumage as used in celebrations around the world with an outcome of a relief/3D textile bird. The second is a celebration of art from around the world with a printed textiles outcome.

 

Assessment is ongoing and based upon the work produced at each stage of the project as is the model for ks4 assessment.

Examined by

Two folders are created throughout the course, a coursework folder and an examination folder. The coursework folder is developed throughout year 10 and one term of year 11 and constitutes 60% of the overall grade. The examination folder is started in the Spring term of year 11 and follows a theme given by the examination board, the folder constitutes 40% of the final grade and culminates in a ten hour practical examination. Both folders contain investigation of the artwork by established artists and artwork produced by the student. Students must also produce written work exploring the theme, analysing artwork and explaining their personal response to the project.

Key topics taught

Drawing from first hand and second hand sources using a range of mark making techniques.

· Experimentation with a range of materials and techniques.

· Development of textiles skills with an emphasis upon use of materials with the aim of producing large pieces of work to a high standard.

· The study of key themes in Art, for example, portraiture and landscape a exploring these themes within the contexts of culture, history and contemporary practice.

Assessment Objective One is concerned with developing student's awareness of Critical and Contextual studies. A range of established Artists and contemporary artists are studied throughout the two year course. Work is produced visually with supporting text.

Assessment Objective 2 is concerned with developing student's understanding about ideas and the uses of different materials. They are encouraged to use a wide variety of materials with confidence.

Assessment Object 3 is concerned with developing students recording skills. We encourage all students to record from a range of experiences.

Assessment Objective 4 is concerned with final outcome.

It is taught in a recently refurbished room that has been custom designed in order to make all types of textiles possible. If you choose to study this option you will be given the opportunity to study a range of techniques which include felt making, batik, screen printing, machine embroidery and weaving.
