Textiles vs Art - GCSE OptionsWatch
Any advice would be appreciated
By textiles I assume you mean textile art (not tech)? If so I’d do normal art. I’m doing textile art right now and it’s an absolute pain, all it really does is limit what materials you can use and I find it takes way longer to produce anything because sewing is so time consuming (at least for me!). I’ve also seen people incorporate a bit of textile into their art work and there’s nothing to stop you doing that. On the board my school does (OCR) they are marked off the same markscheme, textiles just specified what techniques you have to include, so you’d be expected to produce the same kind of work whichever you take. Unless you are only interested in doing textile pieces, take art.
