This year BATD has undergone a facelift of sorts, and we have a new program structure in place. All the once familiar course names have changed, and projects have evolved in line with our new direction. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing with you some of the project work undertaken during Semester One. Today’s post is by regular guest blogger and BATD staff member Emma Lynas, showing the fantastic outcomes of The Young Ones project:

The Young Ones (not to be confused with the early 80’s sitcom)

The first project for the new look Textile Design Studio Body course required second year students to investigate and design for the high end / independent children’s wear market

Monday’s studio class was used to build on existing skills learnt in first year to create a series of repeat patterns for either print (digital or screen) or structure.  In Tuesday’s workshop new techniques were delivered and applied to a range of textile swatches, print, knit and weave.
