NCEA Level 3 Textiles Technology
Teacher in Charge: Mr N. Sandes
Students will develop pattern cutting skills along with working for a client to construct a garment or textile article that meets their specific needs. They will then develop their own individual project. Students will work with a client and work through the design process, which involves research and evaluation of their designs and resources to create decorative features using applied design techniques such as screen printing, embroidery, beading to create a visually appealing final outcome. Students have the chance to select standards that they wish to work towards and that best suit their project and may have the chance to complete scholarship with their portfolio. A minimum of 16 credits will be taught and extra credits options will be available to all students.
Scholarship Entry is also available in consultation with the teacher.
*No prior experience required
