Hartlepool Sixth Form College


AS / A2 Textiles

You will look at a diverse range of artists and designers to inform your own unique art based textile outcomes.

The first year focuses heavily on workshops and developing new skills before applying your ideas to 2D, 3D and fashion/interior based outcomes.

The second year helps you to develop and refine these skills, building an exciting portfolio of work based around a self-selected project.

Whatever you may be thinking about doing in the future, we believe that Textiles is an exciting area to study. If you feel that you would like to take this subject as part of your study programme, we look forward to meeting you in September.
