Course content

Our MA Textile Design programme will challenge and accelerate your individual approach to decorative design, through in-depth personal development in design, material knowledge, process, colour, pattern and texture, in the context of textiles for fashion, interiors and installation.

This programme facilitates an experimental and interdisciplinary approach to design, through exploration, experimentation, innovation and craftsmanship, exploring how textiles connect to contemporary design practice, human experience and issues of sustainability.

This programme encourages you to pursue new thinking to develop your design ideas, and to examine more personal references. You will also interact with emerging technologies and sustainable solutions, capitalising on collaborative opportunities and the numerous options for textile design, making and production.

The programme is designed to encourage the development of your personal practice through the enhancement of skills, critical engagement and collaboration with others, in the pursuit of new ideas and new ways of designing and making.
