Overview

Why study Product Design: Textiles?

Textiles is not only a vastly creative subject in which anyone can discover their passion, it is also one of the UKs leading industries. It allows ideas and concepts to become reality, combining the personal expression of the art world with the fast paced passion of the fashion industry. Throughout this you will experiment with a wide range of textiles fabrics and techniques including pattern drafting, creative pattern cutting, fabric manipulation and decoration. You will research, explore, develop and refine your own concepts and passions into professional standard products. You will have the opportunity to create at least one extended collection of work based on an idea, concept, theme or issue of your choosing. This course is highly practical with a focus on manufacturing and designing to the highest standard.
