“I enjoy textiles because it is a chance for me to be creative and explore in making different things. Also the topics we do are really interesting and fun. I’ve learnt so many things in how to make different pieces of clothing which I think will be really helpful in the future. Textiles inspired me to want a future in the fashion industry. I am now looking at courses to do at college in fashion as I believe I have found my (unexpected) talent in textiles. I’ve loved every class in textiles. Believe me it’s the best!”
