The main aims of the course are to explore basic sewing and pattern cutting techniques.
Students will develop understanding of the design process in both 2 and 3 dimensional form.
2. What you will study
During the two semesters, students will produce a body of work consisting of sewing samples and construct a basic pattern block. They will also gain experience of working with industrial equipment when constructing their final fashion outcome.
Students will be supported to understand the design process through class talks, group/individual discussions and studio-based practice.
Students are encouraged to keep a visual diary, which reflects their personal practice, inspiration, individual interests, work of other designer/artists and fabric research.
