This Textiles course gives you the opportunity to develop a personal and structured approach to project work by exploring ideas and materials, developing your critical faculties in both practical and written work and acquiring a high level of design and making skills.
This is a specialised course, which works in the area of constructed textiles, dyed and stitched fabric and fashion, using a variety of experimental methods and materials. All projects begin with drawing, before moving into textile media. Work is focused on art based and creative processes rather than the traditional way of making functional garments. You will study the work of other artists, designers and photographers, including work from primary sources during visits to galleries and museums.
