Focusing on innovative approaches to design you will be able to investigate textile practices without being constrained by a curriculum which segregates design specialisations.
Freedom to explore creative practice together with a proactive approach towards industry engagement, self-promotion and competition entry helps students gain placement opportunities and win awards every year, including New Designers, Bradford Textile Society and CAMAC Student Wallpaper Design.
Lectures and workshops with guests from textile design and fashion sectors such as Sarah Angold (Sarah Angold Studio), Sally Ann Wood (Cath Kidston) and Margo Selby encourage industry understanding. Trips to cities such as Paris and New York include studio and trade fair visits to further support you in identifying and developing your own career path or business venture.
We challenge conventional thinking about textile design practice and encourage and support you to push the boundaries of your practice through experimentation, critical reflection and skilful use of techniques and processes.
