FREE RESOURCE:  INSPIRING BOYS TO DO GCSE TEXTILES

We are offering these resources free of charge, but if you would like to donate to our ongoing support of textiles education, we would really appreciate it. Textiles Skills Centre is managed by a small team of volunteers, who develop free resoures and support teachers through the Textiles Teachers Centre and other networking activities.
Any small donation (per teacher) would mean that we can pay for the website, Dropbox, Zoom and admin costs.

At the moment all costs are met by our team and time is given freely. Your donations, however small, will help to enhance and continue providing this support and resources.

Please click the DONATE button.

  • Male Fashion & Textile Careers (to use as displays & careers presentations to students)
  • Male Fashion Designers for Inspiration (To use as displays and within your schemes of work)
  • TEXTILE INSPIRATION: These resources have concentrated on male artists, but of course female artists obviously inspire male design just as much as male.
