Title of Scheme: No. of Lessons:6 Group: 2nd year

Printed textile wall Total Time: 6 hours No. of Pupils: 24
hanging inspired by
hat designs.
Students will explore screen print technique.
Students will experience the creative use of fabric, paper.
Students will learn about design ;motif; pattern; colour;
placement; stencil; composition of a textile piece through print
Students will investigate hat designer Philip Treacy within a
contemporary textiles

Overall Learning Outcomes for the Scheme:

• Student will understand and implement all techniques
through samples and making a printed textile piece
• Student will learn about fabric, motifs, colour and
composition for design
• Student will research Philip Treacy and key areas.
Investigating/Exploring/Creating (include illustrations, especially
your own work):

Hat designs and sketch by Philip Treacy

Philip Treacy hat are… bold; vivid; theatrical; imaginative

structure; unusual objects; couture; beautiful; unlikely bric –a-
brac sculptures; part of the fashion world but also cross
boundaries to visual arts; curvy; handmade creations; fun and
glamorous to wear; worn on and around the head.
• Investigating… the form and shape of hats looking at Philip
Treacy design work;
• Exploring…require the students: observation drawings from
hat shapes, design a motif; colour studies to be used in
2colour print for screen printed imagery.
Creating…require the students: observation drawings, tracing;
design motif; tracing; cutting shapes; translate own designs onto
fabric and printing, design mood boards; sample work for each
techniques, a visual interesting finished printed textile wall
hanging. This wall hanging will be rich; colourful; textured; bold;
bright; experimental; fabrics; printed imagery; and visual

Stencil technique with sponge Design work;

tracing; stencil cut

Stencil design; 2&3 colour print Stencil template

Screen printed imagery onto paper

Screen printing technique

• By the end of the teaching block each students will have

finished an individual quality piece: 1 x A3 printed textile
wall hanging which show evidence of all techniques within
the design.
• 2 x A4 observation drawings; 1 x motif studies; 1x colour
studies; 1 x mood board and final composition plan

Understanding/Evaluating: (include illustrations):

• Allowing for question and answer time after technical

demonstration and lessons.
• Evaluations through group reviews, research, homework,
design worksheets.
• Group presentation on research area.
• Students will show evidence of problem solving with relation
to their design work
• Exploring the work of Philip Treacy in relation to his
innovative hat designs

• Images sourced from internet and books on print,
contemporary textiles and designer Philip Treacy.
• Presentation on Philip Treacy designs
• record progress of students work using digital camera
• use of whiteboard to outline the structure of the lesson

Key words/phrases:
• Fabric, textiles
• Screen print, resist
• Design motif, translation simple lines, tracing
• Colour, composition
• Decoration, construction, deconstruction
• flowing shapes, form, balance, hats
• designers, contemporary textiles

Teaching/Learning Strategies:
• Presenting information on the subject matter and key areas
of learning through visual aids
• Describing the key area, techniques and subject matter
verbally and through observation drawings
• Demonstrations to the group explaining techniques and
• Homework will demonstrate if the student has grasp the key
areas during the lessons and further research will give the
students knowledge, skills and confidence.
• Students will create sample work and a final printed textile
• Reviews will be teacher led of students work and learning
throughout the whole teaching block

Materials: Selection of fabrics, screen printing materials and

equipment, craft knives and cutting board; scissors, pva, masking
tape, cartridge paper, fabric paint, cardboard, newspaper print;
tracing paper, paint, colouring pencils, wax crayons protective
cloth for surfaces light box; iron; hairdryers, string, pegs,
sponge, bucket, cloths and pens.
Safety Precaution:
• Safety talk and demonstration on correct use of craft knives, screen
printing equipment and cutting boards, and iron where applicable to
lesson plan.

• Two students have SN.assistant who accompanies them in
class. One student had a brain tumour and the other
student has asperser.
• Another student shows signs of dyslexia (ref: art teacher)
not been official diagnosed or assigned a SN assistant.
• Use key words on whiteboard to support and map out each
• Students will be encouraged to simplify design, textile piece
and techniques i.e. explore sponge printing. Select a range
of materials and techniques that will allow them to explore
these suitable to their individual capabilities.
• A4 laminated photocopies of visual images and worksheets
with key words.

Timeline/Sequence of Lessons:
Week One
Lesson 1 (single)
Introduce the subject matter, key words and hat designer i.e.Philip
Treacy. Group
work : hat designs by Philip Treacy given to each group to describe.
Present feedback to the group.
Homework: bring in an interesting hat and accessories from home
for observation drawings in next lesson.
Lesson 2 (double) – Construct and accessories own hat to use for 4
observation drawing and studies. i.e. shape and form, lines and
texture, colour studies, motifs and design
Using paper, pencils, fabric: Homework for lesson 3: complete -4
observation drawings for Friday.
Lesson 3 (Single) Review homework. Introduce design and
composition plan selecting students design work as examples.
Homework: 2 x A4 samples simply design and start collecting
imagery for mood board.

Week two
Lesson 4 (single) Review. Introduce key words associated with
screen printing i.e. positive and negative space and demonstrate
stenciling technique. Handout for group: Homework: prepare stencil
design for a 2 colour print.
Lesson 5 (double) Screen printing workshop. Demonstration on
screen printing technique i.e. how to use a screen, squeegee, inks,
cleaning procedures. Student will create a print based on own
design work. ( Continue screen printing in lesson 5(double lesson)
for unfinished prints)
Lesson 6 (single) Review prints; Introduce key areas for group
research for design board and mood board. Homework for Friday:
start on mood board for own design i.e. inspiration of hat design,
colour studies, drawings

Week Three
Lesson 4 (single) – Review. Introduce about presenting work:
Homework: design work
Lesson 5 (double) Screen printing workshop continued for designs
not completed. Students who have finished their prints will continue
to work on designs for mood board. Homework: finish mood board
and final work for lesson 6
Lesson 6 (single) Final work hand in: Group review and discussion
