Teacher in Charge: Mr N. Sandes
The main focus of study at this level is to explore fabrics and textiles in the fashion industry. Students will focus on designing and constructing a garment or textile item of their choice. During the course students will work through the design process and carry out detailed research and experimentation with fabrics and construction methods in order to make decisions about their final outcome. The basics of fashion drawing, research and evaluation will be an integral part of their work. Up to 20 credits are available from a selection of Achievement Standards.
