Details of Learning Activities
This unit is integrated into the projects undertaken with the following units;
- VART 5910C Apply manipulation techniques to create experimental textile samples
- MANU5914C Select raw materials.
This is a studio based course covering both theory and practical aspects of the development of processes and products relating to textile design.
Individual and group projects will be undertaken in a fully equipped studios using equipment suitable for sample and production, the studio is a simulated industry environment.
Upon completion of the sampling and finished product your work is presented to a panel of industry peers for review and feedback.

Textiles and Fashion, Jenny Udale
Students are required to source and supply their own materials for producing textile samples and finished product.
Overview of Assessment
To achieve successful completion of this course students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency.
Assessment tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.
Students will be awarded a grade only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period on the first assessment attempt.
Units assessed as ’not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ’competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but are not eligible for grading.
Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.
All work must be submitted by the due date. Late submission will not be graded higher than a PASS.
Detailed project briefs will be provided in class sessions and available on Blackboard
Task 1 Folio Samples
Task 2 BeeKeeper
Selection and use of materials
Development of a product using manipulation techniques

This course is run in a workshop environment.
To comply with Occupational Health and Safety standards,students are required to wear sturdy footwear with covered toe protection, and other personal protective equipment where instructed.
Special consideration Policy (Late Submission)
All assessment tasks are required to be completed to a satisfactory level. If you are unable to complete any piece of assessment by the due date, you will need to apply for an extension. Special consideration, appeals and discipline :
