A classroom project designed for the year 7-11 curriculum, Wool4Skool is backed by a comprehensive resource library and over $10,000 in prizes. With 2014 marking the Woolmark brand's 50th anniversary, students are being inspired to design a garment for the 1960s, 70s, 80s, 90s or today.
Now in its fourth year, Wool4Skool has placed Merino wool into the hands of thousands of Design and Technology students, introducing young Australians to the versatility of our nation's fibre and the fabric it creates.
While the project does not involve students making their designs, they must demonstrate knowledge of wool and the textile innovations that have made it so popular with the world's leading designers over many generations.
Teachers who register will be sent a teacher resource pack tailored to their specific year groups including large fabric samples, swatch books and classroom posters not to mention the endless resources online.
"I feel privileged that Wool4Skool actually acknowledges the role that teachers play. It is a very special award because I value the sheep and the Merino wool industry - it's a fantastic product," Nicole Koinuma, the Wool4Skool 2013 teacher winner added.
Watch the 2013 winning year 10 student, Sophie Alyward at her photoshoot with her winning garment, made by leading Australian designer Jonathon Ward.
