FAS541 Construction IV

[1–3, 3 cr.]

This final advanced Construction workshop sees students explore and resolve manufacturing issues for their final collection by testing techniques and processes learned throughout the program. It is here that students have the opportunity to experiment and push the boundaries of accepted norms of how garments may be perceived. The production of a final collection requires skill, planning and finesse at every stage to ensure professional standards remain paramount with self-directed study and planning being central to this. This workshop sees students produce a series of garment prototypes for the express purpose of understanding how a collection might function when realized in the actual fabrics. Students learn through individual technical guidance.
