DISCOVER THE BRIEF
Earth, water, fire and air.
Create a unique design made from wool, taking inspiration from the earth’s natural elements.
From fashion design to architecture, visual arts, and beyond – there’s no limits to your area of design.
Research the design properties of wool and investigate how these can be included in a design that embodies your interpretation of your chosen element of earth, water, fire or air.
Your design should consist of 1 to 4 pieces and must be made up of at least 70% wool. Show how the characteristics of wool fabrics and wool innovations have been harnessed within your design to showcase this incredible fibre. Investigate and develop your use of colour, texture and decorative techniques, and incorporate these in your design idea.
Create a design that celebrates Merino wool and our planet and let your creativity run free!
