Textiles

Hello, I’m Mrs Evans and I am Head of the Textiles Department at Passmores Academy.

The department's main focus is to develop students’ creativity and skills through exploring a variety of materials, techniques and finishes to produce high-quality textiles products. Students arrive to each lesson keen and ready to learn with a ‘can do’ attitude and enjoy creating new and innovative designs that are then interpreted into a fabric focused outcome.

The teaching team delight in seeing the students achieve and develop their practical skills as well as their knowledge of textiles. In KS3, students rotate with technology subjects. In textiles, they focus on both hand and machine sewing skills as well as exploring a number of surface decoration techniques.

In Year 9, 10 and 11, Textiles students explore a range of materials combined with a fashion and textiles specialism. The course encourages students to develop their textiles skills further as well as combining them with other materials.
