Taster Textiles & Craft Workshops
1. Insight into Textiles
This one-day workshop takes place in school and is an introduction to the textiles industry. This involves the scope of the creative sector, career progression and fundamental creative business knowledge.
2. Explore Textiles
Explore workshops run over a period of two days. This involves taking students out of school and immersing them into the textiles industry. Students have the chance to participate in ‘behind the scenes’ tours, speak with creative entrepreneurs and business professionals. We look into further and higher educational courses and look at key skills the textile industry is looking for.
3. Create in Textiles
'Create in Textiles' are 3 day workshops whereby schools can select project of their choice. Students will gain further insight into a specific area of textiles and surface design. Each project will involve guest speakers, tours, skills development and a completed piece of individual or group work.
