In Year one the modules are workshop based and cover design and textile techniques, fibres, dyestuffs and drawing. You’ll also engage in visual research in support of your technical work, and you’ll understand the inter-dependence of practical, historical, theoretical and intellectual skills.
In the second year you’ll continue to develop specialist skills in textiles (printed, woven, knitted, and embroidered) combined with visual research to explore further possibilities. As the year progresses you are encouraged to develop personal ideas and concepts in depth in an individual textile study programme.
Your final year allows you to develop your personal ideas and skills in order to prepare a final piece, textile collection and portfolio of work. The focus of the course is Mixed Media Textiles within a broader Art context and students are free to work across disciplines if they wish.
Sample modules include:
Introduction to Mixed Media Textiles
Advanced Textile Workshops
Individual Study Programme (choosing from a combination of Printed, Knitted, Embroidered or Woven Textiles, you will work across the disciplines and cross the conventional boundaries of techniques and materials to create mixed media textiles that are innovative and original).
