Textiles Co-Curricular Opportunities

All students are welcome to take part in the ongoing co-curricular options offered in Textiles Technology each year in order to learn new skills, make new friends and work towards points for their SILver award.

After School Sewing Club (Participation)

The main focus of the after school sewing club is to work on fashion and textiles competition entries. However students are also able to come for teacher and peer support on their own sewing projects. Group members may also choose a group textiles activity to work on with teacher support. Members may need to provide their own materials and patterns.

Textiles Technician (Service)

Students can volunteer to support the Textiles department a couple of break times a week carrying out jobs to help ensure efficient running of the workshop for classes including: tidying jobs, machine servicing, pattern preparation, stock checks, displays and more. 20 hours of completed service provides a service point towards their SILver award.
