Food for thought, life and wellbeing is a daily concept for the team of Home Economics specialists here at Stromness Academy; using practical work to demonstrate theory.
From S1 to S6, students are given the opportunity to develop an understanding of ingredients, learn basic life skills and demonstrate a creative flair. Non practical lessons continue the interactive theme; sensory analysis, taste testing and product evaluation to name but a few.
The Fashion & Textile course is a highly practical subject which will allow you to show off your creativity. The course begins with all the basics to build up confidence. You will then start to learn about various techniques which will allow you to create a variety of fashion and textiles items which you can then design yourself. Examples of items that you will make are fleece hats, pencil cases, cushions, tote bags, skirts and pyjamas bottoms.
