Just planning my new AS Art & Design Textiles, I've come from D&T Textiles as I know a few of you have! I am starting Y12's off with exploration of techniques, fabric manipulation etc (as I did with D&T) although I am unsure how specific to be with the theme? Would it be a good idea to use themes from the specimen external set assignments? I love the idea of 'Fragmented surfaces' or 'Reflective and Translucent'. Am I being to 'teacher-led' on these themes? I will include and artist or art movement as starting point too. Any thoughts welcome, many thanks.
