* This is a Material Intensive Elective. Confirmed enrolment in this Elective is conditional on payment of the Material Intensive charge of $30.

In this elective, students will take on the role of a Textile/Fashion designer

The two major units explored during the semester are:

  • RECYCLED FASHION: Students redesign a pre-loved or recycled garment and decorate it producing a contemporary, unique wearable outfit.
  • PRODUCT DESIGN: Students learn to construct a garment using a commercial pattern

Students undertake the design process of INVESTIGATING, DESIGNING, PRODUCING and EVALUATING. They are required to produce an A3 design folio for each of the products. They will be assessed on their practical and theory work.

Throughout this elective, students will be exposed to construction, printing and decorative techniques and processes that will enhance their products.

Students will be expected to have their own sewing kit. They may be required to purchase their own fabric for specific products. This elective prepares students who wish to study VCE Product Design and Technology: Textiles
