Year 11 Textiles and Design (11TXD)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs E. Hoskin

This course is designed to foster creative and critical practice in a project based environment. The primary focus of this course is designing authentic and contemporary products within the context of this ever changing specialist field. It is a broad introduction to ensure students have the opportunity to develop their thinking, design and practical skills in this specialist area

Students draw on prior-learning from year 9 and 10 Textiles and Design Technology, using Design Thinking to generate outcomes for authentic needs and opportunities that meet the requirements of NCEA level 1 Materials and Processing Technology in the context of Textiles.

Projects develop skills and knowledge in; Design Thinking, apparel and industrial soft goods design, construction techniques, pattern drafting and adaptation, fibres and fabrics, sustainable practices and upcycling.

Textiles and Design Technology facilitates the use of skills and knowledge acquired from core subjects such as maths, english and science, providing students with opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in authentic project based assignments. Students are encouraged to push boundaries, think innovatively and critically analyse their ideas. 



Pre-requisites

Year 10 Textiles is an advantage.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Materials Fee of $55. Students are required to supply their own fabric and pattern. Individual projects may incur additional costs depending on the nature of their outcomes and resources required.
