Ways to Help Your Child

How can I help my child with Textiles?

  • Talk to them about their work; ask them to show you their sketchbooks/portfolios (GCSE).
  • Encourage them to experiment with Textiles techniques at home and to get designing/making.
  • Provide basic Textiles equipment at home (needles, threads, materials) so that they can enjoy making out of the classroom environment.
  • Ask your child what they are studying; ask them to explain the techniques they have learnt in school.
  • Visit galleries, exhibitions, fashion shows and museums with your child.
  • Encourage your child to attend lunch and after school clubs which are offered weekly.
