GCSE Textiles Rescue – Box and inverted pleats
First published 2014
This eight minute video shows the technique of making box and inverted pleats, explaining what they are and where they are used in products. It includes step-by step instructions on how to make and where to use pleats and examples of their use in skirts, shirts, dresses and other products. This technique helps students produce a quality product and achieve higher grades by using this in place of, for example, a dart. A number of other instructional videos and presentations have been developed and are available showing a range of practical skills students can develop to improve their GCSE students’ grades.
The GCSE Textiles Technology programme has been run by the D&T Association since 2012 with funding support from the All Saints Educational Trust. It was originally offered as CPD events to those schools who wanted to improve their Textiles Technology GCSE results to an average score of 60% or above grades A-C. The programme was a mix of face to face national workshop and regional workshops and on-line support meetings.
