BA (Hons) Textile Design explores the three main textile design practices – print, knit and weave – alongside digital and non-traditional approaches to textile design, trend prediction and presentation. It also offers workshops in alternative surface treatments, media and technologies. Our current industry collaborations include work with Gainsborough Silk Weaving Co Ltd, WGSN, Worshipful Company of Weavers, Ballantines, Gianfranco Ferré, Vanners. Polartec, Timothy Everest, Anthropologie, Next and The Wellcome Trust. Our graduates work in a wide range of careers as designers, designer-makers, researchers, buyers, stylists, illustrators, in concept and trend forecasting, in the theatre or in journalism, and many go on to postgraduate study. You’ll have the chance to study two or three of the specialist areas, print, knit and weave, gradually learning which suits your talents best, before you decide which of them to study in depth. The course is taught at Central Saint Martins, King’s Cross. **About Central Saint Martins** Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education.
