  2. What design elements were used and what architectural changes were made by Mackintosh at 78 Derngate to create mystery and spaciousness' in such a small interior.

    The extensions were a modern idea and gave the house another interesting feature.2 Mackintosh's career and style before 78 Derngate: Largely under-rated in his homeland during his lifetime, Charles Rennie Mackintosh was an architect, designer and painter who influenced European design, particularly in Austria and Germany, in the early 1900s.

At one time in the 19th century there were more millionaires in Dundee than in any other city in the world and they amassed their fortunes through the production of jute. Jute is a textile that was imported from India and was used to make sacks, carpet backing, chairs and just about any product that required a coarse and robust material. This, in a nutshell, provides you with an insight into the importance of textiles.

We do tend to assume they're only used for clothing but their uses are mind-bogglingly diverse; from furnishings to road surfaces to medical body parts to cars - textiles are all around us, not just on us. GCSE Design and Technology Textiles enables students to gain knowledge and understanding of the materials involved, their use, their design and the processes required to produce them for a purpose. You'll be designing, testing and producing your own textile products which need to be able to be a success in the market that you have chosen for them. Assessment is done by both coursework and examinationand you can access some great essays on the Marked by Teachers site to see how others have coped with the demands of D&T Textiles questions.
