Students may choose one or two units from the Technology Learning Area in Year 9. Girls can study this course at either Year 9, or 10 or BOTH.
The aim of this subject is to provide students, and particularly girls, with an appealing entry into the world of design and manufacture through the use of materials, equipment and emerging technologies to produce a range of jewellery.
During this course students will have the opportunity to:
Use traditional jewellery manufacturing techniques as well as modern processes such as laser cutting and 3D printing.
Develop key skills in 3D modelling through the use of Adobe Illustrator and Inventor.
Work with a range of materials, including polymer clay, MDF, plywood, copper, acrylic, veneer and resin.
Connect with practicing jewellery artists, designers, manufacturers and retailers through excursions and guest speaking opportunities.
Develop and create their own label and brand for their work.
Use the Design Cycle process to create their own unique items of jewellery, which will then be reproduced through the manufacturing process.
Sell their work in retail space within the local community.
Students may choose to purchase extra materials above the Materials & Services Fee.
