Currently at QA students have the opportunity to study design through the strands of electronics, robotics, wood design and digital design. These subjects allow students to develop a number of skills and knowledge of the design cycle. But they are traditionally ‘boy’ orientated subjects. Qatar Academy has a student population of approximately 50% boys and 50% girls.

Join the campaign for a more inclusive list of options – Help introduce Textiles to QA.

So what is Textiles?

Textiles is the study of fabrics and design. It can include making products such as pillows, soft toys and t-shirts. In Textiles you will learn how to sew using a needle and thread and a sewing machine. You will also learn how to make a simple pattern, cut out fabric and create intricate and interesting products.

Many schools around the globe are currently running Textiles programs and students are enthusiastic about learning and creating different products.
