Design

Every man-made item that you come into contact with has been thought about, researched, designed, developed and manufactured. This country has produced some of the most influential designers who have gone on to shape the objects that fill our world.

You may feel confident about designing things already, or this might be something where you need further encouragement.  At whatever stage you are at, it is here at TGS that we develop that creative spark. We show you how to shape, form and combine materials to manufacture products. These might be made from textiles, they might be made from resistant materials such as wood, metal and plastics, they might even be made from food.

In the Lower School we teach you how to use the tools, equipment and machinery skilfully and safely. You learn how to research possible design themes, how to generate and present ideas and how to plan for their manufacture.
