Transcript of GCSE Textiles

GCSE Textile Design
What does it involve?
60% Coursework and 40% Exam
don't worry it's not a written one!
You will be graded on four assessment objectives:
your drawing (this can be very experimental)
how artists influence your work
your experimentation
the presentation of your sketchbook and a final piece
What will I learn?
You will complete three projects in year 10 looking at a series of different techniques. This year will be about experimenting so you
can take risks, make mistakes and learn what skills suit you best.

In year 11 you will complete one major project and then your exam.
Your whole GCSE will be finished by Easter!
Miss Richardson teaches the GCSE
You will focus on three projects that aim to teach you...
How to use the sewing machine:
You will be taught through workshops and
then be encouraged to develop your own outcomes demonstrating the skills and knowledge you have learnt

any other art subject. It is a perfect subject to choose
