PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Learners credited with this unit standard are able to make a marketable craft product range. This unit standard contributes to the competence of those who want to develop a career path in the Art, Craft and Design sector, and contributes to greater levels of production and quality in this industry. If learners are competent in this unit standard then the general production quality, and marketing of craft products will improve and increase.

Learners credited with this unit standard are capable of:
  • Manipulating material to produce craft product ranges.
  • Producing craft product ranges with specific material.
  • Producing craft product ranges in line with associated principles of design. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is recommended that the learner has completed the NQF level 2 National Certificate in Craft Production or equivalent with competencies in producing a marketable craft product. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    Range statements are included in the unit standard where relevant.
