    Re: Major Textiles Project

    yeah, it was.

    i saw it. and my jaw dropped. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR
    and isnt it funny? how it wasnt overly fussy or embellished but created that kind of reaction? ahhhhh i want it.


    but in response to the confusion over what merits a texstyle-class product - it doesnt have to be hugely extravagant or embellished and thats what a lot of people get confused over. espec. for the girls with more than one major work - IT REALLY DOES NOT HAVE TO TAKE 1000 HOURS TO DO. get a concept, stick to it, make sure it is WELL MADE. seriously. they only award you at the most five marks for degree of difficulty so why bother doing more than what you need to to get 5 marks? y'know?

    hope this helps, rubificticious.

    But then again, if you make a work that's too simplistic, you might not get the marks you hoped for!

    Ah! I know that one. Our tour girl made us all talk about it etc. It was made so well, only thing that really bothered me was the colour of the bodice and the colour of the polka dots on the skirt didn't match. Should have been all white, or all off-white, but it was obviously in the display for a reason!

    Re: Major Textiles Project

    does anyone know what time/date we get our projects back?
    i want/need my portfolio as an example of work to take to rmit interviews.. thats if i even get offered. gah just thinking about my design now and i hate it.

    did anyone else feel that.. that they were so bloody sick of looking at their thing, and talking up everyhting about it, like the inspiration,
    or the properties and performance.. like what attributes the fibre and yarn give the fabric and how it benfits/effectss your design,

    im screwed for this if its in the exam,
    gah

    and my teacher totally hates me.
    she was such a b*tch and tried to write off my design, becauseshe had favourites in the class.
    yet i came first in all our exams since i first joined the school.

    i hate teachers and their favrotism!

Whatever you do, don't lose your folio/ let the uni keep it for reference or something :P cause we are only notified as to whether or not we are selected for texstyle around the 12th of november

    Re: Major Textiles Project

    I'm currently doing textiles at the moment, going to do HSC next year. I needed some help because I was going to make a costume for my MTP, but now I'm getting confused on whether it should be considered as a Textile Art rather than a costume. What is the major differentiation between a Costume and a Textile Art?

    The major difference would be you sources of inspiration/ the justification of design I suppose and also amount of decoration. For a costume you would really be looking at a theme eg mermaids-- or possibly you would specify a particular movie or character as inspiration. For textile art, it doesn't necessarily have to be an outfit it can be a wallhanging etc... also, your idea may be more abstract, for example "water"... the focus would be more on capturing the textures/ capturing a particular mood. Not sure if this helps or if has confused you more :P... Basically there is very little difference - just ask your teacher which area your item fits into best. As a general rule costumes are more thematic and textile art peices are more abstract. You've also got a little more freedom with textile art as you do not have any practical considerations (the item is not designed to be worn-- it is designed as an art peice) whilst costume you will need to include pratical features that make it more suited to its purpose/ make it wearable -- eg, elastic fabrics for a ballet costume, removable wings etc. The major difference would come down to the folio and the documentation. Each focus area is handled slightly differently

    well... I want to make a costume (tutu styled dress) but the only problem is that it'll have abstract features to its design, with visual representation of my concept to bring out the abstract design on the project item. Would it still be considered a costume or a textile art? Or is this something you say 'it is only limited by your imagination' thing where I have to make the decision on what it is?

    I would say go with Textile Art.
    It just gives you more focus on the aesthetic features, rather than the actual dress construction if that makes sense. I'm not saying bodge you're basic construction, but a Textile Art is more heavily focused on the aesthetic, rather than lets put in an elastic waistband because it's a costume.

    also, you can avoid nasty things like zippers and stuff ^^.... actually-- to be honest I wouldn't do anything that even resembles apparal :P... even if its textile art :P. You're just in for loads more stress. Wallhangings are so much easier!!! and you can't screw up/ or not finish in time unless you really can't sew. With a wall hanging YOU decide when you want to stop and put the backing on cause the time is approaching to hand it in. With costume or apparal art as we shall call it :P... you can't just decide to stop if you haven't finished all the skirt panels... or if you haven't completed the bodice etc... so yeah... wall hangings all the way ... save yourself alot of trouble.

    Not if you want to do a tutu! LOL.
    I definatley see what you mean though. But in a way, there's much less scope with wall hangings.

    wow, you can definetley tell that you dropped textiles. im in year 11 and i know what that means. and also, if you say "i dont mean to sound like a bitch" please know what you are talking about before before you go on being a bitch.

    Yeah It definitely could. I'd still do A3 though, more effective. You can still get it printed in A3. If your school doesn't have an A3 printer/photocopier (I'd be surprised..ask a staff room) then just go to a printing store or something. Maybe ask Officeworks?

    Cool idea for the major. I'm doing like.. it's hard to explain. It's textile art, but it's wearable. You know the dolls that are one side the Wolf and you flip it and it's Little Red Riding Hood? I'm making that in wearable form showing the cause and effects of environmental detriment. So one side will be all rigid, geometric, recycled industrial materials, and then you flip it upside down and it's all natural fibres, dip dyeing, embroidered and hand made flowers etc. Still working out the mechanics and altering my patterns.
    Not sure if it will be too much. It's really more of an art concept than textiles major but it will hopefully be good. Any thoughts?

    That sounds so, so amazing. I am making a dress. just a simple dress, with no meaning behind it. Well, I am using only recycled fabrics, it is a wedding dress and I have bought old wedding dresses to make into something new and different. I have spend the past few months doing non stop embroidery and I finally finished that tonight.

    I am more worried about the supporting documentation. I have always gone terrible in these sort of things. Can anyone recommenced a good site or book that will go into detail of what we need to do to get good marks in it?
