  1. Name: ………………………………………………………………………………………… Class: ……………………………………..

  2. gain knowledge and understanding of the design and make process understand who you are designing for by creating a customer profile design and label a range of products write a design specification produce a step-by-step plan for making your product make a quality product. add 10 keywords to your vocabulary How much do we know about where our clothes come from? Take a look at the labels in the clothes you’re wearing today. Visiting all the countries mentioned would probably take you on a pretty impressive world tour! Can you imagine what life is like for the people who make your T-shirts, jeans and underwear? The reality is often harsh. Many of the clothes we buy on the high street are made in sweatshops, where workers receive low wages, work in poor conditions and have no rights. And how about the textiles your clothes are made from? If you are wearing anything made from cotton, the raw material is likely to have been sprayed with chemicals that pollute the environment and endanger the lives of animals and farm workers. How can we make things better for people and the environment through the textile products we buy and design? Design and make a product (a bag, puppet or T-shirt) from textiles that do not harm people or the environment (sustainable textiles) such as using materials from organic or ethical sources or with logos and designs, which highlights ethical messages. In this unit you will: Cotton, organic, manufacture, production, properties, care label, assemble, recycling, biodegradable, prototype.

  3. Go to the Learning Context page at http://www.stepin.org/index.php?id=ft_learning and look at the Did you know? facts. Follow the links and collect your own fascinating facts about textiles and write them down here.

  4. Go to the Research page at ((need specific address for this part of the site)) and read the information about organic cotton, sweatshops and batik-making and the case studies about Kente cloth and organic cotton in Peru. Using words and pictures, create a ‘mood board’ in the cogs below to illustrate the theme of sustainable textiles (textiles that don’t harm people or the environment).

  5. Choose a sustainable textiles product (for example, something made from organic cotton or a fair-traded garment) and answer the following questions by filling in the boxes.

  6. Choose a textiles product that is made from conventional fabric and was probably made in a sweatshop. Fill in the boxes below for this second product.

  7. I want my new textile product to: • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________ • _____________________________________________________________________

  8. Go out and do a survey. Ask some possible customers what they would like etc. Add their comments into the speech bubbles below: Who is going to buy and use your product? What do they like? What don’t they like? Write, draw and stick pictures here to show the type of customer you are designing for:

  9. How can you join and combine materials to make your product? Write, draw and stick examples here to show the different joining techniques you could use.

  10. Using your research, specification and customer profile, draw at least FIVE different design ideas for eco-friendly textile products. Remember to consider the sustainability of your product. Label your drawings and explain any changes that you decide to make to your design. You can start your ideas on this page and continue on the following page(s) Remember to evaluate your work as it develops. Ask yourself; 1. Which is your favourite design and why? 2. How could you improve it? 3. List at least three pieces of equipment you would use to make it. 4. What other features can you comment on? “Over 45 per cent of all cotton grown in the United States is genetically engineered.”

  11. Look at your specifications and your design ideas to select the most appropriate design. Draw your final design here.

  12. Draw and write a step-by-step plan for making your product. Fill in the chart below to show what equipment you are going to use to make your product. How do you plan to use each piece of equipment?

  13. How could you have improved your work on this project? Try to think about the way you worked, rather than about your final product. Design work Identify two faults with your design work and suggest improvements you could make. 1) Fault: Improvement: 2) Fault: Improvement: Practical work Identify two faults with your practical work and suggest improvements you could make. 1) Fault: Improvement: 2) Fault: Improvement: Personal evaluation Overall, how do you think you tackled this project? What were your strengths and weaknesses? What did you enjoy most? What did you find easy? What was difficult? Try to be as detailed as possible.

  14. Now it is time to judge the quality of your final product using your design specification. In the table below, fill in what you said you wanted your product to do (your specification) and then say how well your final product does each of these things. My targets for the next project are: Assessment Effort level: Designing and making level:

  15. Exploring existing ideas Product specification Exploring ideas Developing & modelling ideas Generating design ideas Final design Planning Evaluation
