The study of Textiles Technology provides students with a broad knowledge of the properties, performance and uses of textiles in which fabrics, colouration, yarns and fibres are explored.
In Textiles Technologies, students examine the historical, cultural and contemporary perspectives of textile design and develop an appreciation of the factors affecting them as textile consumers.
Students investigate the work of textile designers and make judgements about the appropriateness of design ideas, the selection of materials and tools and the quality of textile items. Textile projects will give students the opportunity to be creative, independent learners and to explore functional and aesthetic aspects of textiles
Textiles Technology is an elective course that may be studied for 100 or 200 hours in Stage 5. It builds on the knowledge, skills and experiences developed in the Technology (Mandatory) Years 7–8 Syllabus and, upon completion will be recorded, with a grade, on the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).
