Course Description

This unit covers the skills and knowledge required to develop designs and produce woven products to meet a specified design brief.   Coursework applies to the interpretation and analysis of a design brief and development of a design for woven products such as garments, textile products or accessories and upholstery fabrics.   The unit covers both the theoretical aspects of designing for weave as well as giving students the hands on skills required to produce finished woven products.   Students will produce a range of designs and interpret these into woven products suitable for use in commercial applications (interiors, fashion) as well as developing woven products for the ’hand made’ studio based woven textiles marketplace. Students will also undertake research into current trends in the commercial woven textiles industry.

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.   Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including recording all technical documentation in a workbook, exercises completed in class, exercises completed outside class times, producing of a folio of woven designs and checklists completed by the class teacher during class exercises.   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.
