Our 2016 HSC class has made us extremely proud by achieving outstanding results! Five of our students received a Band 6 result, which means they achieved a mark over 90/100. These students had their work recognised in the Australian Board of Studies Distinguished Achievers merit list for 2016.
Two of our students have also been selected to exhibit their Major Textiles Projects in the 2017 TEXSTYLE, an annual exhibition that showcases works of excellence in design, innovation and creativity from Textile & Design Major Projects. Our student Joanna Zhao was FIRST IN NSW FOR TEXTILES and showcased her major work at the Shape 2016 exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum.
We’re always amazed by the amount of effort and hard work our HSC students put into their major works and the quality and depth of their projects. It is so rewarding to help students develop their confidence and enhance their skills doing what they love best.
To offer an introduction on the breadth of skills students can gain through our HSC Mentoring Program, we will be running a 5-day workshop during summer school holidays (23, 24 and 26 January).
This course is designed to assist students with the choice and execution of a Major Work for Textile & Design. During the course, they will produce sample drawings and samples of sewing techniques.
The workshop will be adapted to cover as many aspects as possible that relate to the students’ choice of garment. This will include how to manage the HSC requirements for Major Work and achieve high marks, choice and source of fabrics, fashion illustration using body templates, mood boards, garment costing and the importance of fabric testing and sample garments.
No prior knowledge is required and sewing machines / overlockers will be provided.
