Scheme Plan: Textiles

Title of Scheme: Textiles; Applique

Using fabric to create a built
environment scene.
No. of Lessons: 15
Total Time: 12 hr , 55 min, 775 min
Group: 1
years possibly
No. of Pupils: 23
Introduce students to the concept of textiles and applique technique.
Facilitate students in developing drawing/ design and cognitive skills.
Enable students to create an applique study of a built environment scene based on a drawing.
Encourage students to combine a variety of stitching and material manipulation, to create an applique

Overall Learning Outcomes for the Scheme:
Students will
Identify and describe the work of artist; Mandy Besek comparing it to the work created in class.
Develop cognitive skills when working with material, cutting, manipulating and joining.
Demonstrate a sensitivity to detail, differentiating areas for focus; decorative stitching.
Apply textile techniques learned in class to create an applique design.
Show a willingness to engage with the project in all its facets.

Students will

A built environment; creating a drawing.
Drawing styles creating a quick sketch at first leading into a more focused detailed drawing.
The decorative stitching work of artist; Mandy Besek.
Composing a plan: stating which features need to be created in what order.

Cutting and manipulating fabric to achieve different textures.
Colour use, painting/ staining fabric to create the desired effect.
Experiment using found objects to create texture on design.

An A3 drawing of a built environment
A traced plan of drawing with mapped in colour differentiation.
Small swatches experimenting with texture.
An A3 Applique design based on a drawing.
Critical/Contextual Studies: (include illustrations):

Students will be going out into the built environment to create drawings of interesting architectural features
around the school or in the playground at the park. While out drawing students will create a quick colour study
on the side of their page and photograph the scene they are working from.

These drawings will then be duplicated by tracing over them with tracing paper x2. Students will use their
colour study and photograph to map in blocks of colour on their tracing.

The second tracing will act as a template for cutting out material to an accurate size and shape.
Students will receive demonstrations on how to sew fabric using different stiches such as chain stich and rag
doll stitch.
Students will also receive demonstrations on fabric manipulation. Material will be glued or sewn; some
element of decorative stitching must be present in students work.
Before students begin constructing their design, preparatory work will be done in the form of small swatches.
This will act as an appraising technique for students to differentiate the techniques that were successful.
Students will refer back to these swatches throughout the project, creating new ones before any permanent
work is done on the finished design.

Use of overhead projector for PowerPoint Presentation.
Students will be able to access class computers to gather research/ watch video demonstrations on

Literacy/ Numeracy: Students will

Literacy: Sketch, Feature, Detail, Texture, Tracing, Design, Architecture, Applique, Material, Fabric, Experiment,
Manipulate, Yarn, Wool, Woven, Knotted, Bounded, Collage, Template, Textile, Stitching, Gathering

Numeracy: Draw features on buildings with accurate proportions.
Material: Cut material to size of drawing.

Teaching/Learning Strategies:

Students will be created a small swatch on the first day experimenting with textiles. To allow them to practice
their sewing technique.
Students will also be creating small swatches containing experimentations.
Class Reviews- Peers to peer learning/ assessing.

Teaching Strategies
Demonstrations: sewing, cutting fabric to size.
Visual Aids: Different possibilities for fabric manipulation.
Possibly visiting artists to assist students with their designs, giving technical advice.

Paper, Pencils, Rubbers, Rulers, Masking tape, Drawing Boards, Tracing paper, Coloring pencils/markers.
Material, Wadding, Wool, Sewing needles (variety of sizes), Thread, Glue, Acrylic paint, Scissors, Iron.
Large bed sheets.
Safety Precaution:
Keeping all students in sight while outdoors drawing, making sure the environment is safe and
accessible to all students.
Due to the nature of this project there will be various pieces of fabric around the room while the
students are working. Students will be getting up out of their seats to access materials and
Bags will have to be kept under the table to avoid accidents of students tripping. The material bag
will have to be kept in a safe accessible area.
Demonstration using craft knife correctly. (step by step procedure for students to tick off)
Demonstrations using fabric glue and sewing needle.
Students will bring fabric to the teacher to be ironed.
Students with physical difficulties will be placed in areas with large features on buildings; big windows, doors
etc. They will be possibly focusing on a section of a building or climbing frame in the playground.

These students may also create more accurate work using big needles and wool, cutting out large sections of
material. While these students may have low ability drawing it is often the case that practical, work suits them
better. These students may strive in 3D work which will also have to be taken into account when grading

Students with good drawing skills will be placed in areas with more detailed features.
They will be encouraged to create more intricate stitching work using a variety of techniques.
Timeline/Sequence of Lessons:
Students will
Week One
Receive an introduction to project
Create a drawing from the natural/ Built environment.

Week Two
Trace drawings mapping out blocks of colour.
Create small swatches, experimenting with materials and techniques.
Begin creating applique on fabric working from the back of the image, forwards.

Week Three
Continue applique cutting, manipulating material.
Appraise design; refer back to swatches for inspiration when manipulating fabric.
Begin stitching over aspects to highlight detail.
Week Four
Finalise design stitching/ gluing on features in the foreground.
Overlay design with decorative stitching.

Week Five
Continue decorative stitching.
Create a boarder to frame work if adequate time is available.
