S2 and S3 Trip to Dumfries House Estate

Well done to our S2 and S3 Fashion & Textile Technology students who excelled themselves at our recent trip to Dumfries House. Run by Future Textiles lecturers from Glasgow Clyde College, pupils were guided through a day of textile development that runs in line with the Nat 5 course. Pupils covered many skills throughout the day and everyone produced a high quality bag to take home. The day was a great success and helped to increase the students’ confidence in practical skills.
