Brochure Text

Students who take this level one module will gain and extend their experience of working with different kinds of garments. At the start of the course they will negotiate a set of targets / tasks that will be undertaken during the course with the tutor which will focus on individual styles and interests. These tasks will centre on a personal style and be outlined as design briefs. Students will also learn to make a simple pattern from an existing garment which can then be up- cycled using new fabrics or personally designed fabrics from XA18305 to complement your clothing A high standard of attention to detail is required throughout the course. The first project will be to evaluate and re-design an article of clothing that does not fit very well. Regard will be paid to the features of the different types of fabric and their unique qualities and the aim is to show a synthesis from the skills learnt from the Up-Cycled Clothing module. Sewing machines will be supplied for class time projects but students must have access to their own sewing machines for their home study.
