Year 9 students exhibit their creations on the catwalk.
Our Year 9 Textiles group have worked really hard on their recent textile design project - "Embellish and change a simple t-shirt".
They have learnt how to use a sewing machine and have used this skill to help them alter the shape of a t-shirt by adding darts, lace inserts, lace trims & hemming. Each student came up with a different and unique design and spent several lessons implementing their creative ideas.
Some students even attended lunchtime textile workshops to learn other techniques like felting & riveting, so that they could really stretch themselves with these new skills. We held a Fashion Show on Friday 28th October where our students could show off their amazing creations to peers and staff, accompanying it with a commentary explaining their designs.
