Designing and Making with Textiles at Upper Key Stage Two: Design and Make a FabFix Repair Kit
One of the trial units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. In this unit, children design and make a useful resource for a home that meets all the family’s identified textile repair needs.
The purpose of the task is to show the need to repair textiles when they become worn or damaged. The stimulus materials show how commercial products try to satisfy that need and lead to the children defining their own design criteria for a repair kit.
