What will I learn and how will I learn?
Students can pick and choose what they would like to design and make, from Laser Design to Textiles and Fashion Design. It is up to the students' needs or interests and an individual programme will be designed for them. Students will be learning how to create and make a product using a CAD* programme for the Laser and Engraving machine. Students will use a variety of materials from MDF, acrylic, card, paper and textiles for their product. Students can choose what they wish to design. However, there are specifications to size and cost that will need to be considered in their designs and the ability of the laser cutter. Students will design and make a product for a client's need. This course is for the future fashionista, interior designer or product designer. Students will follow the Design Process and have a choice of what assessment standards they wish to cover. Students will complete three internals and one external from the supplied list of Achievement standards.
Fushion 360 and LaserWorks will be used along with Vcarve Pro and other computer design aided programs.
