FOOD STUDIES 9
This course is designed to develop your cooking skills and take them to the next level. We will consider the “why” of cooking as well as the “how”. Some of the topics we will be covering are eggs and breakfasts, lunches including soups and salads, dinners, and desserts. We will solve simple recipe problems, discuss food guides, food costs and grocery shopping.
TEXTILES 9: Sewing Construction
Learn the sewing techniques necessary for the construction of most garments. Projects will be chosen according to individual needs and ability. Patterns and fabric are selected in keeping with fashion trends and personal taste. Possible projects include pajamas, blouse, top, or shirt, skirt or semi-fitted pants, and a dress. We will also be doing some Coast Salish weaving.
TEXTILES 9-12: Knitting, Embroidery, and more…
This course is designed for students to follow creative interests in textile studies. In this hands-on project-based course, they will learn a variety of crafting techniques such as knitting, crochet, embroidery, needle felting, and weaving, and use them to design and create their own projects. Students will learn textile crafting skills and gain knowledge of equipment and tools that could be used for leisure or used professionally.
TEXTILES 10-12: Sewing Construction
Students who have completed a Textile Studies course can further develop their skills using more difficult fabrics and more complex patterns. Those students who have sewn since grade 8 will learn basic techniques necessary for the construction of three garments, (i.e. dress, blouse, shirt, pajamas, fitted pants, shorts, skirt, vest, unlined jacket, housecoat.) or other textile products using sewing and Coast Salish weaving. Projects may be chosen according to individual needs and ability. Patterns and fabric are selected in keeping with fashion trends and personal taste. These courses are offered as levels, so you can still take a Textiles 12 course, if you have only completed Textiles 8.
