Fabulous Felting in D&T A level Textiles

I absolutely love these felting projects that Liz Morgan has done as a first project with her A level students as part of the AQA D&T Product Design Textiles A level. This is an excellent example of how creative D&T textiles can be and how theory work can be taught through practical work.

Students were given an open brief with a focus on up cycling clothes, sustainability and life cycle analysis. The shirt was bought and the skirt was made from an old woollen jumper and both projects were felted by hand.

Across the group students did a mixture of dry and wet felting along with using a felting machine and creating felt balls with needle felting. 

What a great introduction to D&T Textiles A level!
