Either Semester

In this course, students are encouraged to develop their skills in the design and manufacture of textile articles and garments using a variety of decorative surface techniques and a combination of hand and machine processes. The surface techniques include printing and painting on fabrics and embroidery and decorative stitching.

Through a range of activity-based projects students develop their skills in design and manufacture using domestic and computerised sewing machines. They record their progress in a folio of design and development work. In addition students are required to complete research assignments based on cultural, historic and technological aspects of costume and clothing.
