Young designers shine!


Last week it was time for the Whitehouse Institute of Design to visit again and inspire our Textiles and Design students from Years 8 to 11. Sarah Hamilton was the guest lecturer and taught the 44 students how to draw and render fashion figures from scratch.

This included:

– Drawing the human body as a fashion figure including proportion and stylised poses

– Rendering Fashion Illustrations with tonal and textural illustration techniques

– Concept and idea development for sketching onto a three-body range

– Communicating design through coloured fashion illustration and production drawing

All students made an amazing improvement in their work during the two days. Sarah had the very difficult job of choosing the best student to win a week’s tuition in Fashion Illustration at the Whitehouse Institute in Sydney or Melbourne.

She also picked an extra 5 students who deserve special commendation for their design skills. Congratulations to all students for their perseverance, commitment and excellent behaviour.

Highly Commended: Tara Lintner (11), Lucia Verguizas (9), Jana Rothacker (10), Imogen Cratchley (10) and Madison Coulter (9)

Young designer award and winner of a week’s tuition in Sydney or Melbourne: Yulahra Habgood Williams (10)
