11 FABRIC TECHNOLOGY
Teacher in Charge: Ms H. Roy
Students use a technological approach to complete a major design project based on their cultural heritage. They formulate their own brief, research and design concepts for a garment inspired by their cultural heritage. The actual construction of the garment allows the student to demonstrate techniques and procedures suitable for Level 1. The design and construction components give students the opportunity to be creative and inventive, make decisions, think laterally, critically appraise and solve practical problems. A study of the elements and principles of design is a necessary starting point to this year long project.
Internal assessment 16 credits. External assessment 3 credits.
