Course summary

Our Surface Pattern and Textiles degree course at Swansea College of Art UWTSD is a vibrant, multidisciplinary programme where we explore textiles, materiality, pattern and making in the far-reaching contexts of fashion, interiors, object and design led galleries. The programme sits in a cluster of courses within Surface Pattern and Textiles – this is a great benefit to our students who can thrive on the collaborative, interdisciplinary study that is possible. The course is academically challenging, contemporary in outlook, and students are taught a wealth of practical and technical skills, enjoying the design potential of our extensive digital and more traditional facilities. The Surface Pattern and Textiles course offers the best training and facilities to prepare our graduates for creative job roles such as designer makers, exhibiting makers, print designers, print makers, entrepreneurs and stationery designers. We are a materials-based course with textiles at the core, we don’t limit ourselves by material discipline! Students explore cloth, paper, metal, wood, plastics, ceramics, glass – then they decide where they take it. We encourage student individuality across our flexible pathway structure rather than enforce a house style. Demands for originality, innovation, professionalism and relevance are paramount in steering the individual to identify their own distinct voice within a highly competitive graduate market. The three pathways – Maker, Interiors and Fashion are all housed within our fantastic studio space allowing a great platform for learning and collaboration. A rigorous and lively approach to design process is fostered across our excellent facilities. Students are given the freedom to innovate, explore the boundaries of what is on offer and encouraged to play, supported by a structured programme of workshops and tutorial engagement. Surface Pattern and Textiles has materiality at the core,  meeting the needs of students who wish to specialise as Designer Makers of the future. You will make innovative work suitable for far-reaching bespoke, or batch production outcomes, relating to design, craft, gallery, object, body or space - you decide!
