As part of their Thinking It, Cutting It unit, the second year students completed a two day workshop titled Ready Steady Cut. As part of this, students worked in small groups united by their appreciation and understanding of the designer they were given at the briefing. Each group was be allocated an image demonstrating their designer’s creativity and the task was to re-create this outfit as a professionally finished toile. This workshop was developed to allow students to showcase their understanding of their designer and to initiate the creative cut processes for use in their own design ideas. The workshop ended with a presentation of all completed work.
