To enhance the Design & Technology Program at Christian College our students attended a one day workshop at the Whitehouse Institute of Design in Melbourne (Home of Project Runway). The students who attended the day were a combination of the Year 9 lunchtime class Textile students from Bellarine Campus and Years 10 and 11 Textile students from the Senior Campus.
The Institute is a highly regarded College specializing in Fashion Design, Interior Design and Styling and Creative Direction. The Kick-Start Workshops aim to introduce design concepts and develop skills that will prepare students for further studies in design.
On the day, the Institute awarded a prize for the student who showed the most potential for their drawing abilities throughout the day. Georgia Gross-Drayton in Year 10 was awarded a ‘One-week Fashion for Illustration’ workshop valued at $500.
In addition to this workshop, the students were given an introduction to the courses available and a tour of the College. The tour was inspirational for the students. It allowed them to see many of the different artworks the students have been working on that were displayed around the college, an insight into the Project Runway series and the room in which this was filmed as well as an opportunity to see some of the students working on their collections.
