Summary

This unit is subdivided into six topics plus an end-of-unit assessment spread across roughly seven lessons. It is a theoretical unit covering the latest Edexcel Design and Technology specification 1DT0. The processing and sustainability of extracting textiles from their raw materials is covered before looking at stock forms and their advantages. School and commercial manufacturing processes including cutting, shaping and finishing methods are covered as well as the different scales of production. Quality control is investigated, and various surface treatments and finishes are characterised before students subsequently sit an assessment test comprising questions similar to those found on the GCSE exam paper.
