Course summary

So much goes into designing and creating a successful costume. You’ll analyse, interpret and make the visual elements of character expression and storytelling through the relationship between costume, the body, and movement. We’ll encourage you to take risks and to question and challenge your work. Studying our Costume with Textiles course will encourage you to: * Investigate design, textiles and construction techniques to give you a thorough grounding in all aspects of costume. * Experiment in costume design and illustration, textile design, pattern cutting and construction techniques, bespoke garment fitting, and final costume realisation. * Develop professional costume skills such as text/music/character analysis, in-depth visual and contextual research methods, communication and presentation practice and applying reflection and critical evaluation. * Learn practical textile specialisms including embroidery and print, as developed and used in the costume field. Try new techniques for ageing and breaking down textiles in costume for a variety of performance areas. We’ll give you the chance to get out and about, with trips to current costume-related exhibitions, performances, and events. Our design, construction, and textiles studios are home to facilities that help bring your ideas to life including computer-aided design (CAD), and traditional and contemporary embroidery and printing techniques including handcrafting, laser cutting and digital printing. Our dyeing, printing, embroidery, and construction workrooms have specialist equipment so you can work on surface textile techniques and sophisticated costume construction methods. Professional links and accreditation: This course is accredited by the Textile Institute (http://www.textileinstitute.org/), a worldwide organisation for textiles, clothing and footwear. This was awarded in June 2017 and is reviewed every five years. The accreditation recognises the quality and excellence of the course’s provision, and that it meets the educational standards required by the relevant specialisations within the Textiles industry. Students who graduate from this course can apply for the professional qualification, Associateship and Chartered Membership of the Textile Institute, after a shorter period of work experience than is usually required, or in some cases directly on graduation. Additional Costs: Basic materials will be provided during the first and second years of the course, including pattern paper, thread, calico fabric and embroidery/print materials. You’ll need to supply some of your own materials, including sewing equipment, art materials and printing. The costs may vary based on the materials you choose. The approximate cost of these items in recent years has been £90 in the first year, £70 in the second year and £80 to £120 in the final year. In the second year you’ll need to supply the materials you require to produce a corset (£28 corset pack) and materials to create one costume. There is no limit on the amount you may wish to spend, but you will be asked to set and work within a budget. As a guide, costs in previous years has ranged from £80 to £400 per student for this project. This is dependent on the student’s choice of materials. In the final year you’ll need to supply the materials you require to produce your major collection. There is no limit on the amount you may wish to spend, but you will be asked to set and work within a budget.
