"The Wool4School competition is a wonderful opportunity for the students to participate in an innovative real design scenario. The four parts of the competition allow the students to work through the various processes: creating a mood board, a design, then justifying their design through their creative statement and finally producing technical drawings. These are all diverse skills and to implement them in a design competition is such a great process for the students.
I also enjoy going through the production of fibre to fabric, through demonstrations of spinning, then students weaving fabrics on our floor and table looms, also, looking at the sustainability of wool, especially the life cycle. I see the competition as a fun and professional project for the students to participate. The bonus is the great sponsors and prizes."
