Socks, dolls and clothing: Handwork makes it all!

03 June 2021

In Year 8 textile students learn to use the sewing machine and follow a pattern to make a pair of shorts or sew long trousers. During the semester they learn about fabric properties and how to manipulate fabric to create colourful patterns and sculptural effects. They are also making buttons and sewing craft bags on the machine and by hand.

Class 6 are keeping their feet warm by knitting socks, perfect for these cold winter nights; Class 5 are making dolls and dressing them with their own bespoke crocheted outfits!
