Year 8 Textiles Learn All Sorts of Techniques

Year 8 Textiles 2 
In Year 8 Textiles, students have been using a technique called felting. The students use their hands, along with hot water and detergent to manipulate the fibres so they fuse together. Students are also learning a number of different techniques including tie dye, quilting, printing and how to hand appliqué using a blanket stitch to then sew pieces together using a sewing machine and create an iPad cover! 
Year 8 are really enjoying the creative and hands on opportunities in Textiles and will have the opportunity to select it as an elective when they move onto Year 9.
