The MA Embroidery course will provide you with an opportunity to specialise in stitch, in the broadest sense of the word. Embroidery has vast potential as a creative medium and can be used within art, craft and design outcomes. You will be expected to have an understanding of the context for your work and undertake appropriate visual research. Both traditional and digital technological processes are available in specialist workshops, including Cornely, Irish, domestic, and single head computerised machines. The studios and workshops offer a lively and supportive place to test out and visualise ideas.

Design Network

Based in the heart of the School of Art, MA/MFA Design: Embroidery is part of an innovative design network — a community of staff and students exploring design ideas in a discursive, cross-disciplinary studio environment. Critically informed practical designers, the group works experimentally, inspired by new insights and possibilities.

While studying towards a particular qualification at MA/MFA level, students experience their subject in the broader context of contemporary design practice.

Specialist Environment

Dedicated spaces for the postgraduate community have been developed to enable the postgraduate community to flourish. These spaces, for thinking and practice, are located centrally within the School of Art, allowing easy access to an extensive range of workshops where the combination of traditional and state of the art equipment opens up a world of exciting possibilities.

Course Content

The MA Design: Embroidery is made up of four units totalling 180 credits.

The programme is designed to help you acclimatise to the challenges of MA level research and practice, enabling you to identify and describe a clear direction for your postgraduate design study.

You will be encouraged to develop design propositions that encompass key design issues and have complexity and ambition, taking full consideration of the relative contextual drivers.

You will also be encouraged and supported to extend your experience in the professional sphere either through a practical project, research context, exchange, work experience, or other negotiated professional set of interactions with an external partner, groups of students and creative industry.

Towards the end of the programme you will undertake a major project to consolidate your past research and practice into fully realised collections, pieces, proposals, business plans, or exhibitions – what ever means is appropriate to the work. You will also have developed a strategy for the continuation of your practice located and contextualised to the profession or discipline.

If you choose to progress to MFA Design: Embroidery award you will study a further two units of 60 credits each.

This award is focused on the continuation of your practice aligned to the research and selection of appropriate public or professional venues and platforms to disseminate a significant body of work. You will be required to produce work for a public audience in the most relevant and appropriate form along with any implicit publicity and dissemination material.

Resources

We have developed a dedicated postgraduate area occupying an entire floor of the main School of Art building, offering an exciting space to be, both intellectually and practically. The centre is located in the newly refurbished Chatham Tower with studios, design laboratories, seminar rooms and extensive workshops that form the nucleus of this vibrant, cross-disciplinary learning environment.

This programme offers a rich and stimulating exploration of materials and textile processes with applications spanning a broad range of contexts, and challenging any boundaries which may define what textiles can be.

We’ll nurture the development of your interests through focused research. With subjects tailored to your own curiosity in and around textiles, this variety of approaches within each cohort creates a rich environment for innovation. This breadth is also reflected in the range of staff working on the programme, with a stimulating mix of backgrounds from print, embroidery, and woven textiles as well as graphics and jewellery.

While embedding the rudiments of the techniques and facilities of the discipline, we encourage you to embrace the possibilities available and consider the collaborative partnerships and excellent facilities that the wider design school and University can offer to enrich your projects. Through our links with the textiles and fashion industries, you’ll be supported to find a work placement during your studies, gaining valuable industry experience.

Programme structure

*Please note that the one year MA is under review for 2017/18. Applications are currently being accepted for the two year MFA only.

On the one-year MA programme, you will produce a body of work on an agreed proposed topic, culminating in resolved practical solutions. The longer MFA allows you to complete an extended investigation. Both are project-led.

Classes are offered in drawing skills, technical workshops in the dye lab, print room, and in our computer aided design (CAD) suite for digital printing and CAD embroidery. Your study will combine practical studio work closely entwined with theoretical and written studies, including professional practice elements to prepare you for employment in the industry.

A lecture/seminar series will help you examine the wider context for your project, and will help you to articulate your ideas through the written and spoken word.

Career opportunities

This programme can offer a route into careers in many areas, including the fashion, textile industries, and beyond. Our graduates have an excellent track record, going on to work directly in design studios in London, Paris and New York, in companies such as Red or Dead, Osborne and Little, Cole & Son, and Diane von Furstenberg. ECA graduates have become stylists, fashion buyers, illustrators or fine artists, while others have pursued careers in related design industries such as automotive interiors and interior design.

Introduction

The course aims to develop confident and experimental practitioners who will push the boundaries of the subject of costume beyond its established traditional role.

Content

The course aims to develop confident and experimental practitioners who will push the boundaries of the subject of costume beyond its established role. Taught largely on a one to one basis, by international practitioners, experienced teachers and senior researchers, this MA will nurture your creative ideas about costume and performance.

You will design, realise and experiment with costume based performance ideas that enable you to define your inpidual voice in relation to contemporary culture and practice, while responding visually to the relevant performance context.
Beyond the understanding of performance and the role of character creation through costume, the study of Costume Design at MA level allows you to locate your practice within the wider realms of contemporary culture and art, as well as within the relevant dramatic, social and philological contexts.

The relationship between drawing, practical realisation and performance, is central to the way design is approached: ideas are developed on paper and through movement, as well as through pattern cutting, textile printing, dyeing and surface manipulation.

Practical experimentation is achieved through access to the extensive technical facilities available within the college, expanding knowledge of the uses of CAD, tailoring, print, knit and embroidery within costume. The costume studio in John Prince's Street is well equiped to enable students to develop their ideas into realisation, and expert technical support is provided for students on a weekly basis.

Structure

Full Time 15 months level 7 180 credits

Term One:

Costume for Live Performance (40 credits)
Research Methods (20 credits)

Term Two:

Costume for Film (40 units)
