Whatever your relationship with textiles, this exciting and challenging course will inspire and develop individual creativity and encourage appreciation of the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing.
The main requirement of this course is a passion for textiles, design and the world of “formal, functional and frivolous fashion and textile products”. This subject gives you the opportunity to enhance life skills through problem solving, logical thinking, communication and time-management. It is a doorway to many professions such as interior design, fashion merchandising, fashion journalism and a way into the rapidly developing field of ‘new’ technologies. Through experimental activities you will enhance your technical skills and understanding of textiles materials and components to create innovative mock-ups and prototypes. Sketchbooks, presentation boards, portfolio and practical outcomes will provide evidence for University applications.
