Level 1 Fashion and Design Technology

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: T. Arends.

Textiles Technology is an engaging and hands-on subject that falls under the category of Materials and Processing Technology. With a focus on creativity and authenticity, students explore significant learning opportunities by designing and creating textile outcomes that are fit for specific purposes. Through this course, students develop a deep understanding of materials, techniques, and processes relevant to textiles, enabling them to plan projects, develop specifications based on design concepts and briefs, and produce outcomes that address identified needs or opportunities.

In addition to acquiring practical skills that can be applied throughout their lives, students learn the value of collaboration and its integration into their technological practice. They also gain an appreciation for sustainable practices through research and their practical application. Health and safety considerations are given paramount importance, ensuring students prioritize their own well-being and that of others as they engage in hands-on activities.

All students must be prepared to source their own materials and accessories for all garments that are designed and constructed. (Toile fabric, dyes, and basic sewing materials are supplied). There are donated materials also available if suitable for their projects.
