Textiles & fashion introduced in DT

Textiles at Marling was introduced at the start of this school year in Design Technology and the Year 7’s and 12’s involved have really enjoyed the new projects. We have a group of Year 12 students taking part in an external competition to recycle items into fashion, using the 6 new mannequins, overlocker and 6 new sewing machines to develop their entry into the competition. The Year 7’s have been immersing themselves in the fashion world, from designing outfits on the mannequins using the theme of biomimicry, learning how to pin and work to a pattern, developing the skills to create successful fashion illustrations and using both hand sewing and machine sewing to create their very own set of monster juggling balls. We are looking forward to developing textiles at Marling in the coming months and well done to all the Year 7 students who have completed their projects this week, keep sewing!
