Course summary

Course overview:

MA Textiles, based at UCA Farnham, is built around developing your individual research into textile art, culture, craft and design and will enable you to combine previous experience of textiles practice with a personal project.

You’ll be encouraged and supported through the process of exploration, transformation through to resolution. Challenging your own conventions, you’ll innovate with materials, processes, techniques and ideas and emerge with a renewed sense of personal vision.

You'll benefit from our links with established artists and designers drawn from a UK and international cohort. Our team comprises eminent professors, visiting scholars, academics and associate lecturers, experienced practitioners, designer-makers, artists and researchers, who work in industry, produce commissions and who regularly exhibit and are published internationally.

The course programme includes opportunities for live working projects with established galleries. The content of lectures and seminars focuses on professional practice, including high profile guest speakers from art, craft, industry and design practices.

We curate our own Textile Collection, which provides our students with an enviable on-site archive of historical and contemporary material objects to study. Also located on our Farnham campus is the internationally renowned Crafts Study Centre, UCA’s purpose-built museum, research centre and gallery dedicated to crafts. We have a long list of alumni who set up as designer-makers and practice as textile artists and many work in education as academics and researchers.
