On the foundation year you’ll also be introduced to techniques used within art, fashion and design that will be necessary when you begin working in studios and workshops. You’ll learn about a range of different materials, methods and processes to create work within the broad context of art and design. There will also be opportunities to practise the techniques you’ve learned via short practical-making projects, as well as through open-ended longer projects that will focus on developing your sense of direction and a personal perspective on art, fashion and design.During these projects you’ll get the opportunity to explore pattern designing and cutting, couture fashion, textiles, embellishments and customisation, fashion drawing and photography.Your subsequent three years of study will focus on more in-depth study of fashion and you’ll be joined by students on the standard three-year course, studying the same content and having the same choice of modules.
