FAS202
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. McIntosh

Do you have clothes in your wardrobe that you don't wear anymore and love too much to throw away? 

Do you have an interest in interior design and would like to learn how to use fabric to transform a room? 

Would you like to learn how to make a garment for yourself?

This is a practical-based course which aims to teach you a wide range of skills in recycling clothing, decorating a room and how to use a commercial pattern to create a garment. You will have the opportunity to further improve your confidence in sewing and construction, learn how to adapt patterns to create new styles and just simply enjoy sewing as a creative outlet. 

Each student has the opportunity to explore their own interest in fashion and to develop their own sense of style. 

Projects include:
"Fashion Re-style" - provides you with the skills to restyle and recycle clothing to create a whole new look

"Fashion Inside" - create a textile item or piece of art to decorate a room in your home

"Fashion Forward" - explore fashion trends and create a garment for yourself

The course consists of Level 2 Achievement Standards and Level 2 Unit Standards, and also provides the opportunity for endorsement.

Students have the opportunity to enter regional and national competitions
