- Medium of Instruction:
Wearables are artefacts worn on the human body, enhancing a given feature of the body or creating an entirely new interface for interaction, thus extending the traditional function of clothing into new artistic or functional areas. It is the aim of this course to introduce students to materials, processes and techniques necessary to be working in this field, which interprets the human body as an interface for creative expression.
Accordingly, the course covers basic techniques for designing with textiles, pattern making and pattern alteration, which enable learners to develop creative concepts into wearable designs.
Building on to these skills, through studio exercises, student research and studio practice the students are invited to explore various approaches, concepts and materials for the creation of wearable artefacts. This knowledge shall then be applied to produce a wearable piece or body extension from the very first design sketch to a finished prototype.
