Wool4School Design Competition

Wool4School, returns in 2017, with some brand new prizes on offer and the addition of another age division. The 2017 competition has expanded to include Year 12 students, with the winner to be offered the exceptional opportunity to attend the prestigious Whitehouse Institute of Design under a full scholarship to further their education in the fashion industry.

For high school students dreaming of becoming a fashion designer, this year’s brief is to design an outfit for their favourite musician to wear on stage during a performance. The original outfit must be made from at least 80 per cent Australian Merino wool and include a wool accessory. While students do not have to make their designs, they must illustrate and carefully describe the textiles used in their work.

Full details, resources and lesson plans can be found on the new-look www.wool4school.com, along with details of the amazing prizes on offer for students and teachers.
