An entertaining way for students to demonstrate creativity and generate design ideas using drawing and rendering techniques.

This resource is designed to motivate our students during the current climate and inspire them to keep creating even though times are uncertain.

The trend of ‘dressing up’ to take the bin out, as the wheelie bin is going out more often than us now has been reported on in numerous publications and news programs. Let’s inject a bit of humour back into our students lives with this amusing textiles drawing task.

This digital download includes the ‘Design a Bin Isolation Outing Costume’ Design Brief and 4 unique fashion croquis for students to trace or draw their ideas on.

Students are encouraged to design a minimum of 3 designs with some suggested themes. They will then be able to tick which focus area their design fits into, apparel, textile arts, or costume. There are also two questions exploring textiles as a medium for self-expression and a general capability self-reflection.

  • 15-page resource with:
    • 4 unique fashion croquis
    • Student instructions and design brief
