Welcome to the Forums!

Technique and method can sometimes be used interchangeably.

Here is the main difference:
Method: a settled kind of procedure, usually according to a definite, established, logical, or systematic plan: the open-hearth method of making steel; one method of solving a problem.

Technique: the manner and ability with which an artist, writer, dancer, athlete, lawyer, or the like employs the technical skills of a particular art or field of endeavor so as to effect a desired result.
