Textiles and design

Two Unit Board Developed Course (BDC) Category A

Want to be the next Collette Dinnegan or Wayne Cooper? Do you enjoy the creative flair of design? Do you follow fashion trends or show an interest in new designs? Perhaps Textiles and Design is your course. Over 2 years you will study the design and construction of textile items, the structure of fibre and yarns, the textile industry, the history and culture of fashion, and a contemporary designer.

Practical experiences are integrated through the course covering project work, fashion drawing techniques and experimental tasks. For the Year 12 course, students will be required to develop a Major Textile Project which is focused on an area of interest. This has two components: the textile item(s) produced and the supporting documentation detailing design inspiration, visual design development, manufacturing specification and investigation, experimentation and evaluation. The Major Textiles Project forms part of both the school’s assessment and is marked by external examiners to make up 50% of the HSC external examination mark.

Further information is available on the Textiles and design syllabus website.
