Year 9 Textiles is a challenging yet rewarding subject that tests your abilities in an encouraging environment. The highlight of Year 9 Textiles was making the teddy bear and beach bag. Textiles was the highlight of my every week and I strongly recommend this subject as it is a fun and entertaining subject that all students can enjoy.
