This course takes you through the tactile world of textiles – from fashion and interior design through to greetings cards, gift-wrap and wallpapers. You gain a deep understanding of texture, colour and pattern – and the techniques you can use to bring them together to create something spectacular. You hone your technical skills in print, stitch and embroidery. And you experiment with traditional methods and digital technology. Discover the kind of designer you want to be – and the career path you want to follow – as you learn from working designers and artists. Get insight into the commercial world with industry placements and exhibitions. Develop your own unique style – so that when your time comes, you will wow the world. By the time you graduate, you will have the creative vision and commercial awareness to imagine and build a concept and turn it into a finished product. You will be ready to open the door to your future career.
Whilst your learning is designed to develop you into a rounded and capable artist/designer and intellectual, your curriculum is similarly structured with your potential in mind. As such, the emphasis that will have been placed upon your work ethic, both creatively and academically is matched with significant focus on real world experience; from building contacts and undertaking placements to live briefs and, should you choose so, support in forming your own business. You can elect to take a route through your second and final years of studies where you can engage with businesses or launch your own for the moment you graduate. In your final year, rather than submit a dissertation, you have the option of devising a detailed business plan. Throughout your time at CSAD, you will be meeting and hearing from professionals within your industry, honing your skills and ideas for commercial and professional advantage. Cross-disciplinary projects will prepare you for teamwork later on, whilst live briefs will prepare you for deadlines and the demands of tight specifications.
