Pop-up shop to showcase fabulous GCSE textiles work

I love the way that Tracey Heaton from Flixton Girls’ School has showcased her students’ GCSE textiles work using a gazebo to create a pop-up shop feel.

Tracey has used a gazebo decorated with fairly lights, with work hanging from rails, as well as from the gazebo itself, along with hangers and eye catching tags she has made herself.

The display is very professional and eye catching and really showcases the students’ high quality work in an unusual way. This is a great way of really standing out from other displays at an open evening or other similar event. 


The students' GCSE work is of a really high quality with a wide variety of outcomes including fashion items, horse numnahs, and interiors. Textiles is a popular subject at the mixed ability girls’ school with students achieving 100% A* - C for the last 2 years. 


Why not use a similar pop-up shop idea to showcase work at your next open evening or similar event?

The Textiles Teacher Roadshow

Tracey’s pop up shop idea was used to inspire a display at the Annual Textiles Teacher Roadshow. The pop up shop was a real talking point of the day and showcased samples of work in a really eye catching way.
