Course summary

Are you a creative person? Do you have a passion for design, making or material innovation? Textiles BA/BSc(Hons) allows you to explore the wide-ranging creative potential that this exciting and diverse subject area has to offer. On our Textile course, we’ll: * Give you the chance to produce innovative designs allowing you to explore how to make the textiles and surfaces which surround us all each day. You’ll be able to develop your aesthetic, commercial and professional awareness whether you become a Textile Designer, a Surface Designer and Illustrator or a Textile Craft Practitioner and you'll be supported by expert academic and technical staff who are actively engaged in research and are professional designers and artists in their own right. * Use drawing to loosely inspire colourways and texture or producing a surface design or illustration. A drawing may become a building block in a digital design process useful for real world applications. * Help you develop craft skills used in the creation of products suitable for the fashion or interiors market. Our modules which may be partnered with industry collaborators will help you learn about these design and production processes so you can see how your ideas may become fabric for fashion seen on the catwalk, the patterns that cover the walls, floors and surfaces of interior spaces, wrap our presents or accessorize our lives. We’ll encourage you to develop your creative, professional, intellectual and personal abilities as these are acknowledged as the key skills required for a broad range of textile related careers and if you opt for a four-year course you will have the chance to go on placement, gaining invaluable experience in the world of textiles. As a Textiles student, you will have the chance to develop your artistic skills and experiment with a breadth of materials and techniques in our world class workshop and studio environment. Workshops looking at areas such as print, knit, weave, embroidery and digital design will help you discover the type of textile practitioner that you are. Understanding this could provide you with the skills needed for a career in one of the myriad of industries that employ textile graduates each year. 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 is reviewed every five years and is valid until 2021. Additional costs - Materials: Initial materials are supplied for workshop sessions but you will also need to supply some of your own materials during the course. These will vary based on the specialism you choose, but could include sketchbooks, art equipment and materials for producing samples, and for printing or presenting your work. The costs of these items may vary based on the materials you choose and there is no limit on the amount you may wish to spend. However, as a guide, costs in recent years have ranged from approximately £280 to £530 per year.
