Combining the creative professional design courses and using the expressiveness of textile materials to tell stories together with methods of play to practice the new appearances of soft fabrics, this project will explore how to guide students to apply textiles as creative media, involving the design elements of Taiwan landscape of literature as inspired methods and creative processes. Grouped students will be guided to fulfill the integrated projects of the topical subjects. They will investigate the limitations and creative possibility concerning the exploration of material experiments in a sense that the soft materials attribute to labor works of the handicraft. Accordingly, the course will lead the students to explore the texture compositions of the fabrics, to review the transforming and accumulation of creativity in the processes of the project developments. Based on the cultivation of students’ awareness of local culture and environment, the main concept of the course of ‘Practices of Developments and Applications of Fashion Materials’ is to explore how the use of textile materials that connecting images of local environment through text reading can be fed back in the research of teaching practice? This project will further explore how to connect in-depth that the development of perceptual design practice through curriculum schemes, accordingly the manipulations of textile materials convey the local concerns, as well as the developments of material practices and design applications become a medium for revealing the identity of the land.
