Course Description

This unit covers the skills and knowledge required to perform weaving techniques to produce woven design samples.

The unit covers both the theory of weave structures (including traditional and non-traditional techniques) as well as giving students the hands on skills required to set up and operate a loom. 

Students will produce a range of samples suitable for use in commercial applications (interiors, fashion) as well as developing samples for the ’hand made’ studio based woven textiles marketplace.

Students will also undertake research into current trends in the commercial woven textiles industry.

Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

  • analyse design specifications and interpret production requirements
  • produce woven sample according to design specifications
  • identify and address faults
  • make minor adjustments to equipment
  • monitor own work and conduct quality check of sample outcome

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, producing a folio of woven samples 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. Detailed information about grading and assessment will be provided in class.
