“LEARN BY DOING”
Practical ways of re-enforcing theory/techniques:
• Properties of fibres
• Fabric construction
• Shaping products
© The Design and Technology Association
PROPERTIES OF FIBRES
Using multi fibre strip to demonstrate
differential dye uptake.
Not everything dyes in a bucket of Dylon!
www.sdc.org.uk
© The Design and Technology Association
Mauve and Aqua samples were
Procion dye.
Sample on right was Navy Dylon
Cold water dye. – Nylon goes
flesh coloured!
© The Design and Technology Association
WORKING WITH PROCION DYES
1. Cut up samples of different types of fibres
e.g. wool fibre (felting), nylon net, polyester,
cotton calico, silk, cotton muslin…..
2. Place in a microwavable poly bag and add
dye plus chemical water. Squish it around
and put in microwave for 2/3 minutes.
3. Leave it for 24 hours, rinse and admire
different shades.
© The Design and Technology Association
What do I do with all these bits
of fabric?
Layer them onto a backing fabric
Place some stitch and tear behind
Free machine embroidery over the top
Cut out a rectangle
Iron on lamifix to give a shiny finish
Cut out contrasting lining
Iron on interfacing to stiffen further if
required
Stitch on Velcro fastening
Fold up and zig zag stitch on right sides to
make………………………….
© The Design and Technology Association
MEDIA CASE!
• PROPERTIES OF FIBRES
• DIFFERENTIAL DYE UPTAKE
• COLOURING FABRICS
• USING INTERFACINGS
• FREE MACHINE
EMBROIDERY
• CHOOSING CLOSURES
• APPLYING AN IRREVERIBLE
FINISH – LAMIFIX
• PURPOSE OF A LINING
• CHOOSING MACHINE
STITCHING ACCORDING TO
PURPOSE
• TESTING COLOURFASTNESS
• ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
LINKED TO DYEING

LINK TO THEORY – TESTING FABRICS
www.satra.co.uk
COLOUR TRANSFER
FROM SHOULDER STRAPS
Useful DVDs relevant to adding
colour to fabric and subsequent
testing.
Considers Environmental issues
re water pollution from residual
chemicals in effluent.
© The Design and Technology Association
How do you deliver properties of fibres
and fabrics?
Is it an area that your students lack real
knowledge of?
Type in your thoughts and ideas?
© The Design and Technology Association
FABRIC CONSTRUCTION
• Difficult to do in class if using traditional techniques
• Need specialist equipment e.g. knitting machines or
looms
• Time consuming and can be expensive
• Students don’t tend to respond positively.
© The Design and Technology Association
How well do your students
understand how fabrics are
made?
What are the problems you face
in communicating fabric
construction?
Let us know in the chat box.
© The Design and Technology Association
FINGER KNITTING
Sari yarn – finger knitted into long strip –
coiled around to make traditional coil pot –
stitch layers together as you coil.
Try making
own yarn from
old T- shirts.
© The Design and Technology Association
CREATING WOVEN FABRIC
Cut up strips of fabric and
experiment with weaving
together to give different
effects.
Demonstrate warp, weft,
bias.
Students understand plain,
twill and sateen weaves
and why long floats can be
a problem.
They can make up their
own colour and weave
effects.
TIP: lay woven strips on top of iron on interfacing.
Press to keep in place before stitching.
© The Design and Technology Association
Add stitching over the surface to
unify the pieces.
Cover with PVA glue – mix it with
glitter to make it sparkle.
Another example of an
irreversible chemical finish.
Fabric used to make a focused practical
task e.g. bag to include construction
skills such as: making a basic pattern,
pleats, lining, creating straps.
Majority of product made by reusing
old fabric and old components.
© The Design and Technology Association
Links to theory
• Issues concerning sustainability and recycling
• Fabric construction in industry
• Methods of fabric construction determine
possible end use
© The Design and Technology Association
Useful resources from
Practical Action
© The Design and Technology Association
Generally Textile teachers are
good at recycling projects.
Tell us what works well for your students.
© The Design and Technology Association
SHAPING TEXTILES TO CREATE
3D PRODUCTS
• Could be garments – we are 3 dimensional!
• Could be much broader to include pots/
containers/boxes or lighting.
3 D work does capture boys imagination.
Using non woven fabrics also blurs the
boundaries – is it paper, textile or plastic.
True reflection of modern products.
© The Design and Technology Association
© The Design and Technology Association
Quick Containers
• Working with graph paper, start with a
square and add triangles that will be cut
out.
• Bring the cut edges together and you have
made a dart – tape in place.
• Students quickly model lots of ideas.
© The Design and Technology Association
QUICK RESULTS!
Paper template transferred
onto pelmet Vilene.
This can be transfer printed
onto using the pens/crayons
or by sublimation printing.
Alternatively just colour with
paint effects!
Darts are joined by stitching
on the outside with zig zag
stitch.
Add further embellishments as
required.
© The Design and Technology Association
MODELLING IS IMPORTANT
• Challenge the attitude that “the first idea is
the one I will make!”
• Try modelling in PlayDoh for 3D products.
© The Design and Technology Association
USING NON WOVEN FABRICS
• Easy to work with.
• Alternative to felt – used throughout primary
school.
Gives a direct link to the
extent to which non
wovens are used in a
diverse range of industries
– from automotive to
geotextiles, from medical
to aerospace.
© The Design and Technology Association
How do students remember
what has been learnt during
these making activities?
• Students photograph key stages and develop them into own power
point or add written notes to them.
• Link the focussed practical task to an exam design question
e.g. create some 3D work then get them to design an artefact for a
souvenir shop.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
© The Design and Technology Association
Set a design task where they will need to apply their newly acquired
knowledge to a different problem – this could link into the
basic/intermediate and higher level skills boards.
Skill Basic Intermediate Advanced
SEAMS
Flat/plain Curved French
Overlocked Doubled stitched Lap
Overlaid seam Taped seam
Piped
EDGES
Overlocking Faced edge Bound edge
Machine stitched

SHAPING
Darts Pleats from a pattern
(knife, inverted/box)
Elastic sewn to fabric
Gathers Elastic in casing Pleats – creating own
Tucks
E.G. Design a bag using skills from blue and red column – include
bound edge, pleats, zips…
Make it an design project.

  • 6. © The Design and Technology Association Making GCSE Learning Active and Engaging This session should give you ideas to develop quick practical tasks which will help to embed skills and knowledge required for GCSE. • Properties of Fibres • Fabric construction • 3 dimensional work • Time for questions • Evaluation • Next steps and next events
  • 7. © The Design and Technology Association Linking with previous on line sessions……. • Improving your class grades in controlled assessment - Julie Boyd • Improving your class grades in the final examination - Julie Boyd Focus on variety of ways to convey theoretical knowledge and understanding. Methods of helping students become more independent workers – creating greater ownership and sense of achievement. Download these sessions from www.data.org.uk - search GCSE Textile Rescue
  • 8. © The Design and Technology Association How many products do your students make during their GCSE course? Excluding controlled assessment. Type your thoughts in the Chat box and press return or enter on your computer
  • 9. © The Design and Technology Association “LEARN BY DOING” Practical ways of re-enforcing theory/techniques: • Properties of fibres • Fabric construction • Shaping products
  • 10. © The Design and Technology Association PROPERTIES OF FIBRES Using multi fibre strip to demonstrate differential dye uptake. Not everything dyes in a bucket of Dylon! www.sdc.org.uk
  • 11. © The Design and Technology Association Mauve and Aqua samples were Procion dye. Sample on right was Navy Dylon Cold water dye. – Nylon goes flesh coloured!
  • 12. © The Design and Technology Association WORKING WITH PROCION DYES 1. Cut up samples of different types of fibres e.g. wool fibre (felting), nylon net, polyester, cotton calico, silk, cotton muslin….. 2. Place in a microwavable poly bag and add dye plus chemical water. Squish it around and put in microwave for 2/3 minutes. 3. Leave it for 24 hours, rinse and admire different shades.
  • 13. © The Design and Technology Association What do I do with all these bits of fabric? Layer them onto a backing fabric Place some stitch and tear behind Free machine embroidery over the top Cut out a rectangle Iron on lamifix to give a shiny finish Cut out contrasting lining Iron on interfacing to stiffen further if required Stitch on Velcro fastening Fold up and zig zag stitch on right sides to make………………………….
  • 14. © The Design and Technology Association MEDIA CASE! • PROPERTIES OF FIBRES • DIFFERENTIAL DYE UPTAKE • COLOURING FABRICS • USING INTERFACINGS • FREE MACHINE EMBROIDERY • CHOOSING CLOSURES • APPLYING AN IRREVERIBLE FINISH – LAMIFIX • PURPOSE OF A LINING • CHOOSING MACHINE STITCHING ACCORDING TO PURPOSE • TESTING COLOURFASTNESS • ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES LINKED TO DYEING
  • 15. © The Design and Technology Association LINK TO THEORY – TESTING FABRICS www.satra.co.uk COLOUR TRANSFER FROM SHOULDER STRAPS Useful DVDs relevant to adding colour to fabric and subsequent testing. Considers Environmental issues re water pollution from residual chemicals in effluent.
  • 16. © The Design and Technology Association How do you deliver properties of fibres and fabrics? Is it an area that your students lack real knowledge of? Type in your thoughts and ideas?
  • 17. © The Design and Technology Association FABRIC CONSTRUCTION • Difficult to do in class if using traditional techniques • Need specialist equipment e.g. knitting machines or looms • Time consuming and can be expensive • Students don’t tend to respond positively.
  • 18. © The Design and Technology Association How well do your students understand how fabrics are made? What are the problems you face in communicating fabric construction? Let us know in the chat box.
  • 19. © The Design and Technology Association FINGER KNITTING Sari yarn – finger knitted into long strip – coiled around to make traditional coil pot – stitch layers together as you coil. Try making own yarn from old T- shirts.
  • 20. © The Design and Technology Association CREATING WOVEN FABRIC Cut up strips of fabric and experiment with weaving together to give different effects. Demonstrate warp, weft, bias. Students understand plain, twill and sateen weaves and why long floats can be a problem. They can make up their own colour and weave effects. TIP: lay woven strips on top of iron on interfacing. Press to keep in place before stitching.
  • 21. © The Design and Technology Association Add stitching over the surface to unify the pieces. Cover with PVA glue – mix it with glitter to make it sparkle. Another example of an irreversible chemical finish. Fabric used to make a focused practical task e.g. bag to include construction skills such as: making a basic pattern, pleats, lining, creating straps. Majority of product made by reusing old fabric and old components.
  • 22. © The Design and Technology Association Links to theory • Issues concerning sustainability and recycling • Fabric construction in industry • Methods of fabric construction determine possible end use
  • 23. © The Design and Technology Association Useful resources from Practical Action
  • 24. © The Design and Technology Association Generally Textile teachers are good at recycling projects. Tell us what works well for your students.
  • 25. © The Design and Technology Association SHAPING TEXTILES TO CREATE 3D PRODUCTS • Could be garments – we are 3 dimensional! • Could be much broader to include pots/ containers/boxes or lighting. 3 D work does capture boys imagination. Using non woven fabrics also blurs the boundaries – is it paper, textile or plastic. True reflection of modern products.
  • 26. © The Design and Technology Association
  • 27. © The Design and Technology Association Quick Containers • Working with graph paper, start with a square and add triangles that will be cut out. • Bring the cut edges together and you have made a dart – tape in place. • Students quickly model lots of ideas.
  • 28. © The Design and Technology Association QUICK RESULTS! Paper template transferred onto pelmet Vilene. This can be transfer printed onto using the pens/crayons or by sublimation printing. Alternatively just colour with paint effects! Darts are joined by stitching on the outside with zig zag stitch. Add further embellishments as required.
  • 29. © The Design and Technology Association MODELLING IS IMPORTANT • Challenge the attitude that “the first idea is the one I will make!” • Try modelling in PlayDoh for 3D products.
  • 30. © The Design and Technology Association USING NON WOVEN FABRICS • Easy to work with. • Alternative to felt – used throughout primary school. Gives a direct link to the extent to which non wovens are used in a diverse range of industries – from automotive to geotextiles, from medical to aerospace.
  • 31. © The Design and Technology Association How do students remember what has been learnt during these making activities? • Students photograph key stages and develop them into own power point or add written notes to them. • Link the focussed practical task to an exam design question e.g. create some 3D work then get them to design an artefact for a souvenir shop. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
  • 32. © The Design and Technology Association Set a design task where they will need to apply their newly acquired knowledge to a different problem – this could link into the basic/intermediate and higher level skills boards. Skill Basic Intermediate Advanced SEAMS Flat/plain Curved French Overlocked Doubled stitched Lap Overlaid seam Taped seam Piped EDGES Overlocking Faced edge Bound edge Machine stitched narrow hem Rolled edge – hand stitched Cover stitch (overlocker) Hand stitched hem Piped/corded FASTENINGS Velcro Buttons Zips Poppers Drawstring Covered buttons and Rouleaux loop Drawstring Eyelets Parachute clip Hook and eye ‘D’ rings SHAPING Darts Pleats from a pattern (knife, inverted/box) Elastic sewn to fabric Gathers Elastic in casing Pleats – creating own Tucks E.G. Design a bag using skills from blue and red column – include bound edge, pleats, zips… Make it an design project.
