    This unit introduces traditional techniques which will enable students to create unique fabrics through stitching, dying, printing manipulation and felting.Fashion items and fabrics have often evolved from very early experimental explorations with fibres, threads, found objects, colours, patterns and textures. From those first tentative experiments, many small samples have been inspirationally developed into fabric pieces, lengths to wrap or encompass the body, or to reinterpret an everyday garment or accessory. Students develop a resource book of samples and techniques for future reference and extend some traditional techniques through your own creative processes into a final design project.

    Learning Outcomes
