The Fashion department at ECU runs two workshops throughout the year that is open to years 10, 11 and 12 high school students and the general public.
During second term, the school hosts a five week program that introduces visual research methods, investigation and manipulation of materials and basic pattern making to develop creative skills valuable in the design and development of fashion and textile works.
Term three offers a five week program in draping where participants learn direct manipulation and construction processes on the dress making stand. Manipulation of cloth and the deconstruction of the foundation garment, are approaches explored in relationship to personal visual research.
Both workshops are run out of the fashion and textiles construction and print studios at the Mount Lawley Campus, Perth. To view more images of the venues and resources available to the student at the School of Arts and Humanities, head to our Facilities web page.
ECU’s Fashion Weekend Workshops provide an introduction to creative draping methods for fashion research and construction. Participants will be shown strategies for generating ideas for garment through sculptural manipulation of cloth and found garment.
These intensive classes run every Saturday for five consecutive weeks and are taught by Fashion Graduate and Designer in Residence D’arcy Coad.
