This degree gives you the chance to cultivate your creativity in textile design, while acquiring specialist skills in a stimulating environment. Not only will you develop your professional practice and question your creativity, but you’ll benefit from studying at a Russell Group university that gives you a solid academic grounding to put your work into context – gaining professional skills that will really appeal to employers. Core modules will introduce you to the principles of design, while you explore fundamental aspects of textile design. You’ll also gain insight into the historical and cultural contexts of the field of design, and textile design in particular. As you progress you’ll specialise in either structured textiles, including knitted, woven, stitched and manipulated textiles, or digital textiles, where you’ll explore surface pattern for textiles, wall coverings and other surfaces. In each pathway you’ll have the opportunity to work on designs for fashion or interiors.
