Every day we encounter textile design in our lives, encompassing and enriching everything from the clothes that we wear to the pattern, textures and colours of the environments that we live and work in. Join our multidisciplinary textile community and nurture your unique design personality, through an exciting mix of textile material experimentation, personal development and creative industry opportunities.
Our students become accomplished and inspirational textile and surface designers for fashion, interiors, products and craft applications as well as textile buyers, and stylists. You will learn how to design for different markets and audiences, on all kinds of surfaces using traditional skills such as screen printing and digital equipment. With access to our Fab Lab, you can use digital technology to challenge the character of materials and texture.
You’ll be encouraged to experiment and expand on your knowledge of fabrics, techniques and processes. Drawing, design research and development, CAD skills, technical knowledge and professional practice will all be integrated into your learning. We also actively support you in entering national and international design competitions. These core skills will help you to gain greater confidence and grow as a designer and textile specialist. You’ll develop creative sophistication, plus an attitude of visual investigation.
