Ok well..I kind of need help with Textiles GCSE coursework. I have done quite a few pages but have quite a bit left. Has anyone done the GCSE and still has their coursework? I dont want the coursework i just need to know what to do for each page. My teacher is so crap that all our class went to the headteacher to complain. i think she might get the sack next term. im on easter holidays and want to finish all my coursework.

Also if you did the GCSES coursework ages ago and sort of remember hat to do please help

I think its against the rules to post msn/hotmail on TSR so can you PM it please so we can chat as it is so much easier.

Try and get a copy of the specification and work from that :yep: If you get stuck then ask about specific parts as people will be quite reluctant to help without details :-)

If your art course is anything like mine (OCR, I think...), then the specification should be something like this:

AO1- Visual Research (drawings, paintings etc./own photos/other pictures from magazines/newspapers etc./mind map an ideas)

AO2- Art History (pick 1/2 artists and examine/include pictures of their work and then do your own response to it/say why you like it)

AO3- Design Ideas (at least four, in colour/detailed- annotations/explain how you'll do it/how it links with art history)

AO4- Experimentation and Final Piece (produce a final art piece that links to AO1/AO2 and is relevant to topic/product experimentation to show you know what you're doing)

Hope that helps! Good luck...

How far have you got? I agree, I presume you'll be doing AQA so read the specification from their website. I'm sure that will help.

http://www.aqa.org.uk/qual/gcse/des_tec_tt.php I think this is the correct one.

I wish I was still doing gcses. I did textiles (OCR though - and it was a while back) but just keep asking your teacher (I know you said she's useless) to look through your work. Most people in my class got barely half marks until they kept getting a remark. Eventually most people got practically full marks. It's not academically hard, just a lot of pointless testing and trialling. The product design and making is fun though.

Page 1) Customer info - project title, who is the client, where/when the product will be used, what could I make, how will I make it. On other half of page - things to consider- client, function, safety, fabric, style, time available, cost, size, event, component.
Page 2) Image board - pictures of existing products, fabric samples, component samples, etc.....then an evaluation, why I needed a mood board, why I have chosen those items on the mood board.
Page 3) comparitive shop- examples of the product on the market....in a grid...comparing price, colour, descriptio, fabric, and sizes, available.....then evaluated page.
Page 4) A designer influence (so I did Giorgio Armani)....on other half of page I did an influence from the past ( so i did fashion since WW1).
Page 5) Product analysis......I analysed a product already on the market.....I looked at the shop, joining/neatening techniques, colour, price, appearance, fastenings, fabric content, style, washing instructions, country of origin, and function.....then I evaluated the page, saying how it would help me design my prouct and the designs I will use.
Page 6) On this page I evaluated the previous pages (image board, comparitive shop, product analysis)....I did this on a grid.....important points of the research, how the information will help me, an what point will specifically help me.
Page 7) Fabric specification- the kind of fabric I will choose....type of material, construction of fabric, colour, properties, cost per metre, after care.
Page 8) Product specification- what i think my product will look like....style, size dimensions, colours, componenets, finishes, after care.
Page 8) Initial ideas for my product.... I did 6.....drew them in pencil and annotated.
Page 9) Design ideas- ideas that my final product may be like....drawn in pencil and detail annotation....I also evaluated each against my product and fabric specification and also specified where id got my inspiration from.
Page 10) Colour, shape, and pattern ways.....this was my final design....so for the colour ways i drew the same waistcoat 4 times (front and back view) in diffferent colours...etc
Page 11) I did a lining to my product, so I did different pattern ideas....and evaltuated
Page 12) I did different decorative techniques to create my lining....and evaluated
Page 13) Market research- I showed people my design ideas to see which they liked best....then evaluated the page.
Page 14) Health safety and risk assesment...for every action that I would need to do to create my product I wrote risks and evaluated the chance of the risk.
Page 15) Fabric reseach.... Looked at different fabrics and fibre contents....then evaluated them against my product spec and looked how suitable they would be to use.
Page 16) Final design....large picture of design in pen and coloured in on a model....lots of annotation.....examples of embelishment...etc....evaluate against product spec....and evaluate overall.
Page 17)Manufacturng specification.....a flat image drawn in pencil....fabric description (actual fabric being used)...stitch detail.....components used....care label.....packaging info.....total cost and quantities.
Page 18) Toile...mock up of my product...I took photos and did a step by step....indicating any problems I had.
Page 19) Environmental considerations....for example dying of the fabric.....to be more environmental I would use cold water dyes, or use a fabric made from natural or single blend fibres.
Page 19) Fabric layout....the layout of the pattern pieces on the fabric, showing all the pattern markings...evaluate....saying this is the most efficent layout.
Page 19) Costings sheet....the amounts of the materials and how much everything will cost....include labour hours....say it is expensive so appeals to a more upper class market.
Page 20) Production flow chart.....have to look this up...cant explain it very well.
Page 21) Mass manufacture....how I would make my product if it was mass manufactured.
Page 22) User trials...so I did every day activites with my item on....I evaluated with things like 'is it comfortable'.
Page 23) Production plan....lesson by lesson plan....what I did in each...the health and safety considerations for each lesson...quality control checks.
Page 24) Public survey of final item
Page 25) Fabric test....I did a crease test, shrinkage test, piling test, static test, and a dry test.....then evaluated.
Page 26) Evaluation of product...improvemetns and advice to manufacturer.
Page 27) Evaluation of whole folder...research, designing, developments, planning, making, design spec...etc....
....to finish some pictures of my product.


Hope this helps. Xx
