Textile Designs Among the State's Best
Calrossy's Textiles Year 12 class is celebrating a clean sweep, with all four girls nominated for inclusion in the HSC Texstyle Exhibition 2020. Congratulations Laura Annis-Brown, Ruth Cant, Tara Craig and Hannah Wilson on this amazing achievement. The Texstyle exhibition held in Sydney during March next year showcases only 25 exemplary Major Textiles Projects from schools throughout NSW. It's estimated each girl put more than 100 hours of work into their finely crafted garments and portfolios.
Further from this selection, the students also have the opportunity to be chosen for the HSC Shape Exhibition held at the Powerhouse Museum alongside major works from Industrial Technology and Design and Technology.
All four girls worked through an array of challenges this year. It was expected that students completing practical HSC subjects may not finish their projects due to the pandemic and restricted teaching, but for these girls this was not an option. As a regional school, students encounter obstacles such as having limited access to materials for their projects, not being in close proximity to textile resource centres and industries.
Throughout the year Laura, Ruth, Tara and Hannah encouraged and supported each other with both their projects and supporting documentation portfolios. Along with their teacher Ce-Anne Brennan there were morning coffee chats, late night emails and desperate calls made over fabric and machine malfunctions. However, all this made them stronger and more determined to get to the finish line.
This is an exciting time for Calrossy, coming off the success of last year, having had two student’s Major Textiles Projects chosen for the 2019 Texstyle Exhibition. As well as two students for the 2018 Exhibition, the year before.
