Students asked to use wool creatively
Now marking its sixth year, The Woolmark Company’s Wool4School competition has opened for secondary school students to submit their designs.
The 2018 brief is simple — create an outfit design that is multifunctional and highlights innovation and creativity.
Ideas could be dresses that turn into handbags, jumpers that can be worn as skirts, or trousers becoming shorts.
Design entries must contain a minimum of 80 per cent Australian Merino wool and consist of one to four items.
The competition will be judged on students’ sketched designs only, with no need to create an outfit, combined with knowledge of the various aspects of Merino wool.
Full details, resources and lesson plans can be found at www.wool4school.com, along with details of the prizes on offer for students and teachers.
