Year 9 Elective – Fashion
This course offers students the opportunity for self-expression, through the design and construction of several projects.
Students will be designing and making a backpack, a hooded jumper and a recycled garment project.
Students will be required to purchase fabric for their jumper and bring a garment for their recycling.
They will be required to follow a series of design briefs, which will encourage them to think about the final product and create a series of drawings.
