Great textile design combines imagination, creativity and an understanding of technical considerations. At Falmouth, you’ll learn what it takes to design exciting new fabrics for fashion, interiors, artifacts, or one-off pieces for display and exhibition. We maintain the vital balance between the inspirational and the technical, bringing together conceptual, production and critical experiences. For us, textile design is about personal development; we want you to grow both creatively and practically so that you develop your own focus and approach to design. You’ll produce samples, fabric lengths and one-off pieces, learning above all to critically and aesthetically evaluate your work, aided by your study of social, environmental, ethical and economic issues, and their influence on textile design. Textile Design is a global industry. Our students come to us from across the world, and our clients are worldwide too. This is reflected in our roster of placement providers who as well as many well-known UK companies and brands, also include Tom Cody, CDT Studio, Kova Textiles, and Rebecca Taylor in New York, Bec and Bridge and Signature Prints in Sydney, Mahlia Kent in Paris and Ferragamo in Florence.
