Course summary

This Contemporary Textiles (Top Up) BA (Hons) course is for those who have studied FdA Contemporary Textiles at University Centre at Blackburn College. It allows you to turn your foundation degree into a full BA (Hons) qualification. Our degree puts the emphasis on finding creative solutions to challenging design concepts using drawing, print, surface pattern, stitch, embellishment, fabric manipulation and visualisation in combinations that suit learners and the nature of the brief/requirements of the client. Possible solutions could be for wall-coverings, fashion fabrics, furnishing/interior fabrics, bed-linen, greeting cards/wrappings, panels, one-off artefacts or products. Our exciting Contemporary Textiles (Top Up) BA (Hons) puts the emphasis on finding creative solutions to challenging design concepts using drawing, print, surface pattern, stitch, embellishment, fabric manipulation and visualisation in combinations that suit learners and the nature of the brief/requirements of the client. Possible solutions could be for wall-coverings, fashion fabrics, furnishing/interior fabrics, bed-linen, greeting cards/wrappings, panels, one-off artefacts or products. You'll build on the experience already gained in the Foundation Degree, but at this higher level will be able to specialise much more in a particular area of textiles. This final year is your opportunity to practice at a high level in an area that interests you, building on the skills and knowledge that you have acquired throughout your Foundation Degree. Rather than following a core scheme of work, the course offers a great deal of flexibility. Small course numbers mean that you will be able to choose a particular area of interest, with personal directed support from your tutor. This approach is unique locally. With the support of our highly-qualified team, you'll be able to identify the direction for your own particular career path; this may be art, craft or industry-related and then explore the area relevant to you.
