Course content

MA Textile Practice course is a place to explore ideas through making textiles of any kind. Textiles is interpreted in its broadest sense, encompassing art, design and craft, as well as practice that encompasses more than one field. Individual, collaborative and community group work is encouraged. Your work may be process driven, or concept driven. Outcomes range from installation and site-specific work, to community work and design collections.

You will engage in critical debate and reflection as a means by which the field of textiles practice is acknowledged and contested, allowing work to be located in relation to the contemporary expanded field of practice. The studios and workshops offer a lively and supportive place to test out and visualise ideas.
