A Level Textile Design Trip

Published on 28/02/18

On Tuesday 20 February A Level Textile Design students visited a wide range of exhibitions in London to provide inspiration for their Externally set exam task. 

A Level Textile Design students visit the ‘Wildlife Photographer of the year’ exhibition and the ‘Art of British Nature’ at the Natural History Museum. The exhibition of 100 images provided a range of amazing inspirational photographs which could inspire later design work.  The exhibition recorded the beauty and drama of the natural world, from tiny insects to massive mammals.  Some pupils then visited the V&A to see the Ocean liners; Speed and Style as this exhibition was relevant to their themes.

Students then went on to visit the Barbican Centre to see the textile work of Textile designer, Carole Nunes, who displayed a range of 3D structured textile wall art. Finally, the pupils visited the Museum of London to see the current ‘Votes for Women Exhibition’. The students made notes, took photographs and identified design sources which were relevant to their individual design briefs for the externally set assignment which the students are presently undertaking. They will now be able to develop decorative textile techniques from their research.
