Gift bag printing inspired by the Clyde

This project will develop students' k/u of 2D design processes by using the Clyde waterfront (bridges, architecture, the Clyde itself, boats etc) as a starting point to create a unique gift shop bag design for a waterfront shop and participate in a presentation to tourism business, local designer and tourist board to win the chance to have it produced.

Broad Outcomes of learning

  • Subject knowledge gained and enhanced e.g. The design process, working to the constraints of the design brief (responsibility to meeting needs of others), intended market etc
  • Develop enterprise and employability skills: application of knowledge in a real situation by being able to follow a brief, by being in competition with others and by presenting finished product to whole class and then panel of experts (selling your product also relates to selling oneself in an interview situation)
  • Learners have developed enterprising skills identified as 4 capacities of CfE

Relevance to curriculum

  • Supports CfE Art, students will work with the visual elements: shape, colour and pattern
  • Relevance of how textile design is relevant to work and life (everything that you see around has been through the design process). How this subject knowledge is put into practice in a real situation
