Textile Technology 12 combines theory with a hands-on approach to textiles, fashion and fibre arts. It is an exciting course for those interested in art, craft, and fashion; as well as technology and materials science. The curriculum is designed to encourage students to develop advanced skill sets related to textile arts and technologies. Students will develop a portfolio of work and a final textile project to demonstrate their learning in the following areas:

   The evolution of the textile arts from ancient hand wovens to contemporary nanotextiles and conductive fibres; and the impacts of factors such as culture, industry, science and geography.

   Textile development, design and production technologies such as weaving, knitting, felting, dyeing, printing, pattern creation, garment construction, embellishment, applying finishes.

   Characteristics and applications of various textiles, and how to select appropriately for use in fashion/apparel, household, industry, science and technology.

   Creating or adapting textile designs, considering end use, efficiency, economy and the environment.

   Consumer skills for managing a textiles budget.

   Life-work connections and career opportunities related to the textile industry.

If you are creative, interested in fashion, craft, art, design or working with your hands this course would be great for you!
