Textiles major work on display at Shape Exhibition

Mar 21, 2024

Mr Watson and Textiles teacher Ms Gray were delighted to join 2023 HSC graduate Kelsey Smit and her parents at the opening of the HSC Shape exhibition of exemplary major works from Design and Technology, Industrial Technology and Textiles and Design.

Kelsey finished second in the HSC in Textiles and Design and her stunning African-inspired major project was selected for the exhibition. Her creation blends traditional embellishment techniques to create an intricate and textured design, and was influenced by her childhood, in which she grew up surrounded by the Zulu culture in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. Zulu culture is represented in the beading and Rwandan culture through the fabrics. Modern adaptations of historical designs can be seen in her incorporation of 1950s fashion.
