Course Description

This exciting new course will provide for students who are either new to the textiles area at these levels or students who would like to explore their interest in the creative application of fabric techniques and processes. The course will be a multi-level, Unit Standards course, suitable for year 11, year 12 (level 2) or 13 (level 3) students. It is a skills-focused course and will have a predominantly practical focus, enabling students to select from a range of practical projects which utilise a range of practical techniques and processes.
