Projects change and develop regularly and are inspired by a range of themes and textile techniques.
Examples of previous projects include: transfer printed cushions, constructed fascinators, mini make up bags, fashion illustration task, printed boleros, sublimation reusable book bags, painted shoes, Project Catwalk inspired portfolios and upcycling a garment.
Analyse existing textile products and understand how they are designed and their impact on quality of life, to inform their own design and making knowledge.
Make links between good designing and their own product, understanding how to produce a product of good quality.
