This subject introduces students to constructed textiles through exploring the structural, conceptual and technical opportunities offered by knitting. The subject is practice-based and includes technical knitting processes and production using a variety of domestic knitting machine gauges.

Students are taken through basic techniques using standard yarns (provided and self-sourced), and are encouraged as they progress through creative design thinking to experiment and challenge conventions, and explore a range of materials and processes that can be used in specialist areas such as women's and men's wear or complementary design disciplines.

This subject is unique in that it is the only one of its kind offered at university-level in New South Wales, appealing to students who have a desire to create innovative fabrics with imaginative visual and material properties.
