BA Textile Design will nurture your creative, practical and professional skills. Having explored different aspects of textile design in year one, you’ll choose to specialise in woven, knitted or printed textiles, learning traditional manual processes alongside cutting-edge digital techniques. Part of a vibrant, creative art school campus, you’ll have access to superb studio space and equipment, such as 3 Shima Seiki computerised knitting machine and Dubied knitting machines, a Mimaki printer and a range of looms. The programme includes an exciting opportunity to spend a semester working on live company briefs, or studying textile design overseas and to take a year out to spend in industry.
