Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
This course is designed to give you the skills and knowledge required to develop designs and produce woven products to meet a specified design brief.
The student will have completed LMTTD4003A Produce woven textile samples before enrolling into this class.
This course is delivered concurrently (clustered) with LMTGN3002B, Organise and Plan Own Work (MANU5919C)
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
LMTTD5003A Design and produce woven products
Evaluate design and production processes
2.1Technical aspects of production are identified
Plan production of woven design sample
3.1Workstation, tools and equipment are set up according to specifications for work.
Produce woven design sample
4.1Woven sample is assessed against design specifications, pattern and design brief.
Develop woven product design
1.1Design requirements and specifications are interpreted from brief and elements of design are analysed.
On successful completion of this course you will have developed and applied the skills and knowledge to demonstrate competency in the above elements
Details of Learning Activities
This is a studio based course covering both theory and practical aspects of designing and producing woven textiles. Individual and group projects will be undertaken in a fully equipped weave studio using both sample and production dobby looms, the studio is a simulated industry environment.
TEACHING SCHEDULE 2013
Weeks 1 - 9
PROJECT 1: 50%
EXPLORE PERSONAL IMAGERY / BOTANICA
Overview of course module - studio & equipment briefing OH&S induction
Project / Botanica / Produce a series of textile samples
Explore personal imagery / develop individual colour palette / explore and investigate material possibilities to Develop a range of technical textile
samples and explore further variations on weave techniques to interpret personal design imagery into a range of design swatches.
Develop communication tools and develop designs for a series of swatches for the wearables market.
Project 2: 50%
Design a Collection of woven swatches
Explore a range of individual approaches to develop a collection of doubleweave swatches for the contemporary homewares market.
Design a colour palette and develop individual approaches to design for woven swatches. Interpret design imagery and confirm production requirements.
Swatches will co-ordinate with jacquard designs developed in ’develop textile designs using computer based design programs’
The Structure of Weaving, Ann Sutton
Ideas in Weaving, Ann Sutton

The Techniques of Rug Weaving, Peter Collingwood
Paul O'Connor, doubleweave notes, http://www.haven2.com/proc/index.html
You must bring the following equipment to each class:
scissors, calculator, tape measure, ruler, pen, pencils, threading Hook,
Reed Hook, Shuttle Sticks. Notebook, A4 Ring Binder, A4 Plastic Inserts
Overview of Assessment
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 incur penalties.
Full details of Assessment Tasks and grading for each Project will be provided in class.
Folio of Samples: Students submit a folio of woven samples.
Technical Workbook: Students record all documentation of processes and technical specifications in a workbook.
Observational Checklist: Students are observed throughout the semester meeting Occupational Health & Safety requirements of the weave studio.
Assessment of successful completion of particular class exercises are also recorded on a checklist (students will be advised at the beginning of the semester)
Communication Tools: Inspiration Board, Croquis, Visual Diary, Storyboard
|Element||Performance Criteria||Folio of Samples||Observational Checklist||Communication Tools||Technical File|
|1 Develop woven product design||1.1 Design requirements and specifications are interpreted from brief and elements of design are analysed. |
1.2 Design is developed to meet design brief and in line with principles of design and product purpose
1.3 Communication tools are used to present woven design for feedback.
1.4 Feedback is received and design adjusted accordingly.
1.5 Design is confirmed for production.
|2 Plan production of woven design sample||2.1 Technical aspects of production are identified |
2.2 Specification sheet is completed to guide production
2.3 Calculations are undertaken to determine yarn quantities and pattern developed to achieve specifications
2.4 Materials, tools and equipment required for production are selected and prepared.
|3 Produce woven design sample||3.1 Workstation, tools and equipment are set up according to specifications for work. |
3.2 Yarns to be woven are checked against quality standards.
3.3 Weaving techniques are undertaken to meet design specifications for sample and according to OH&S practices.
3.4 Woven sample is checked to ensure quality standards are met including testing for accuracy of pattern repeat, colour or placement, and yarn suitability
|4 Evaluate design and production processes||4.1 Woven sample is assessed against design specifications, pattern and design brief. |
4.2 Weaving faults are identified and design or production problems recognised
4.3 Design is analysed and evaluated to identify opportunities for improvement
4.4 Production process is evaluated to identify opportunities for improvement.
4.5 Process and improvements are documented.
This unit is delivered concurrently with two other units:
LMTTD5007A Develop Textile Designs using Computer based design programs
Students are strongly advised to enrol in the above two units concurrently with this unit.
Study and learning Support:
