Course Description

This course is designed to give you the skills and knowledge required to produce computer aided textile design folios.

This unit requires the application of skills associated with communication to consult with clients, review and interpret design specifications, determine folio objectives and parameters and document information. Initiative and enterprise, planning and organising and problem solving skills will also be used to determine folio specifications, select programs and equipment, plan layouts, and to apply creative processes to folio development. Knowledge and application of computing technology is central to the planning and production of the folio.
