Textile Design is a highly creative Art and Design course which will enable you to create expressive visual and tactile artworks by selecting and manipulating fibres and fabrics.


Year 1 - The year has an emphasis on the experimentation and exploration of materials, techniques and textile processes and you will develop an understanding of print, dyed stitched and constructed textile techniques. You will develop a practical and theoretical knowledge and understanding of how ideas and meanings are conveyed through images and artefacts in different styles and traditions. You will research a range of artists and designers, responding to their work and ideas in visual and written form producing an extended, exploratory project.

Year 2 - The emphasis of this year will be on developing and extending existing creative skills. You will be encouraged to develop a more independent approach to the subject demonstrating continued critical understanding, supported by integrated written engagement with the works of artists and designers to inform and develop work which has a personal significance into a major in-depth, practical and theoretical investigation.
