Creation Mill’s involvement helps introduction of National 5 Fashion and Textile Technology course at Langholm Academy

Langholm Academy is the only school in Dumfries and Galloway to offer their students a Nat 5  qualification in Fashion and Textiles. A great achievement for the Town.  

Founder and Creative Director, Emma Duncan, comments “It’s absolutely brilliant that Langholm Academy is now offering a Nat 5 in Fashion & Textiles Technology, our team’s hard work over the past few years of providing an after school club, holiday sessions and in school sessions as developed into a new interest in the industry amongstthe young people – I’d like to thank  funders including members of the Langholm Funder Forum in supporting our Youth work activities”.  

In this academic school year there will be a group of S4 students taking the course with art teacher, Suzy Cooke. Suzy joined the school in 2023 with new ideas around 
art and textiles.
