Students from around the area come over to Sandringham College on Wednesday afternoons to participate in a range of Vocational Education and Training courses, including VET Fashion. We have students from Elwood, OLSH, Mentone Girls, Kilvington and more, as well as our own students.
Currently our second year students are completing their Fashion range of garments which range from traditional evening wear, boho style designs, Victoria’s Secret style garments, and everything in between.
Our first years are finishing their modified t-shirt, and developing their skirt designs. This has given them skills in a range of machine uses, with both stretch and woven fabrics.
Well….the small group I had in Unit 2 Product Design and Technology this year has made some fantastic pieces from donated fabric….looking at sustainability, design, and working as a team. They created a company called Indah, and here is the product range.
I am hoping to have students guest blogging what they have done each week, both in VET, and VCE units 2 and 4. Today year 12s were focusing on creating patterns and starting on their toiles – mockup . While year 11s started to develop their team ideas. All work tasks are on Moodle, and year 11s should have finished the team skills, product design factor annotations, and product analysis sheets.
