Introduction – researching, developing and then bringing a product to market; Growth – when sales are increasing; Maturity – sales are near their highest point; Decline – sales begin to fall. • Global production and its effects on culture and people. • Sustainability. Meeting today’s needs without compromising the needs of future generations. For example: the sourcing of materials, using sustainable resources, waste materials and CFCs. • Legislation to which products are subject. BSI (British Standards Institute) and ISO (International Standards Organisation). Their general roles/purpose, ISO numbers, the BSI kite mark and why as consumers these are important when purchasing products. • Consumer rights and protection for consumers when purchasing and using products. The basics of consumer rights, return policies, and the Trade Description Act. • Moral and ethical factors related to manufacturing products and the sale and use of products. Considering the needs of others in less developed countries and issues related to child labour, fair wage for a day’s work, companies exploiting underdeveloped countries for profit. • CAD/CAM the advantages and disadvantages of using Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM). The last part of this workbook will help pupils critically evaluate the importance of new and emerging technologies (plus sustainability and environmental issues) when designing and making products.

SustFashWales: The Main Issues of Global Fashion and Textiles Manufacture Sustainable Sustainability

(0)
A short 2 minute video I created for SustFashwales about the main issues of global manufacture in the fashion industry. This is Part 1 of a series of videos learning about the often hidden issues and problems of the global fashion industry. The video was created using Animaker and iMovie. It links perfectly with a recent blog I wrote for Friends of the Earth Cymru: https://www.foe.cymru/clothes-how-bad… I have lots of other videos I’ve created to people to have for free. They are perfect for teachers to use in their classroom or those wanting to learn new skills such as using a sewing machine, threading/using hand needles, hand sewing stitches, sewing applique and buttons all with the aim of fixing your own clothes to save you money and also save the planet too! I also have other videos all about the many issues and solutions of the fashion industry! Subscribe to see them as they are added! If you are a teacher/lecturer get in touch and I will send you links to free copies to use in your own classroom/workshops! . . #SustFashWales was created by myself, Helen O’Sullivan (nee Ball) and I have a long passion for sustainability and transparency within the tangled web that is the fashion industry supply chain. The need for a more accessible sustainable fashion industry has never been greater, as one of the most polluting industries in the world and one that affects us all through the clothes we wear. As consumers we often have no idea how much power we have to make a difference in such a huge perplexing global economy. By doing little things like learning where your clothes and accessories come from, who makes them and then using this to make more responsible choices, we have the ability to make great change! I have been campaigning for over 15 years for a sustainable fashion industry and in addition to my own work as a teacher and a bridal designer I have also supported various causes such as Fashion Revolution, Ethical Fashion Forum etc. However, I recognise the need for a source of information for those in Wales….SustFashWales! http://www.SustFashWales.org

WJEC GCSE KS4 212 222 In depth Knowledge & In-depth Skills Pupil Workbook New Design & Technology

(0)
This 120 page workbook is for the WJEC new specification for Fashion & Textiles. It has been designed to develop pupils in-depth knowledge and understanding (2.1.2 A-J) in design & technology while also covering the practical application of this knowledge which covers the in-depth skills (2.2.2 A-D). Just so you know, I have removed the school logo from the files. This will prepare pupils for designing and making their own products and also prepare them for the final NEA assessments/examination. It has many pages laid out to place everything from fabric swatches, construction samples and decorative techniques. It also has opportunities for pupils to complete several activities for the more theory based pages. There is also a page for assessment at the back of the book for each of the units 2.1.2 and 2.2.2. The book covers in depth Unit 2.1.2 A-J: A Page 4 - Natural, synthetic, blended and mixed fibres. B Page 28 - Woven and non- woven, and technical textiles. C Page 39 - Thermoforming and thermosetting polymers. D Page 42 - Modern and smart materials – This is not covered in here as it is already in the 2.1.1D unit. E Page 43 - The sources, origins, physical and working properties of materials, components and systems. F Page 48 - The ways in which the selection of materials or components is influenced by a range of factors such as functional, aesthetic, environmental, availability, cost, social, cultural and ethical. G Page 52 - Stock forms, types and sizes in order to calculate and determine the quantity of materials or components required. H Page 54 - Alternative processes that can be used to manufacture products to different scales of production. I Page 58 Construction: Page 64 - Specialist techniques and processes that can be used to shape, fabricate, construct and assemble a high quality prototype. J Page 81 - Appropriate surface treatments and finishes that can be applied for functional and aesthetic purposes. The book also gives an opportunity for pupils to demonstrate their practical application of the skills which covers the 2.2.2 unit. These units are: A - Select and work with appropriate materials and components in order to produce a prototype. B - Use appropriate and accurate marking out methods to create a specific outcome. C - Use specialist techniques and processes to shape, fabricate construct and assemble a high quality prototype, as appropriate to the materials and/or components being used. D - Use appropriate surface treatments and finishes for functional and aesthetic purposes. NOTE: I have uploaded the original Word document and a pdf should you have any formatting errors due to specialist font and different versions. If the workbook doesn’t display properly in word then you have the pdf to use instead. Please let me know if you have any issues and queries and i hope I have saved you many many hours of work! I’ve been working on this almost every day for many weeks!

Question Tokens - Cross-Curricular - Get pupils to think for themselves!

(0)
This was created as I was getting a lot of irrelevant questions during my lessons which were taking up valuable teaching time. I overcame this by using these. Pupils are given 2 question tokens at the start of each lesson and the backs feature possible ways to get an answer without asking the teacher: Can I answer this myself? Is it urgent? Can someone else help? These are not designed to stop pupils asking questions but rather to think for themselves. The majority of the time pupils know the answer but don't think about it properly. and develop their own cognitive abilities. All you need to do is print these back to back, they have been tested several times to ensure they line up correctly providing you know which direction your printer prints! Laminate to make them last forever! Give it a try! You may save hours!
