Textile Arts and Design 7 Renewed Curriculum

Course Outline

It is important for learners to develop practical skills in sewing that they can apply to real life situations. These skills can be transferred to potential careers, entrepreneurial opportunities, and personal creative expression.  In order for learners to become informed textile consumers they must understand the different characteristics and properties of fabrics. Learning the proper care for textile items will equip them with this important life skill. Many factors  influence why people make particular clothing choices. Exposure to a variety of these influences will help learners express themselves as individuals and appreciate the choices of others.


The 7&8 Curriculum renewal is being implemented in select schools.

Full implementation of the renewed curricula will be for the 2022/2023 school year.
