Art & Design: Textile Design

Textile Design encompasses both technical and creative artistic skills.

Students use a range of starting points, including observational drawings and photographs and work by artists and craftspeople from a range of cultures and times.

The emphasis of the course is on experimentation and the assimilation of a wide range of new and exciting skills and techniques, including diverse painting, printing and resist techniques, working in two and three dimensions, with a variety of materials, mixed media and resources which include CAD/CAM, and laser technology.

Students develop a broad core of work which shows their journey from initial ideas through to a realised piece.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
