No prerequisites. An interest in creating designs and some experience on a sewing machine would be beneficial.
The Year 10 Fashion and Textiles course focuses on fibre technology with a fashion design focus.
Practical work is a strong feature of this course. Students are presented with challenges and opportunities to express their design solutions in a range of fashion contexts. Pattern making, designing, advanced construction techniques, fashion culture and trends will also be explored. Students will work on fashion design challenges, including creating their own line of street wear fashion items. This focus will provide students with the opportunity to learn how the fashion industry works in a practical setting. There will be a strong focus on working with stretch fabrics and different fastening techniques, allowing students to build their skills in more complex garment construction.
Assessment types will include:
- Individual practical assessments
- Written assignments
- The development of a folio.
Note: Basic materials will be provided. Students may need to supply their own fabric for major projects.
