Stu­dents asked to use wool cre­atively

Countryman - - WOOL -

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.
