Textile Design is concerned with the design of cloth for Interiors and Fashion. There are two broad areas of Textile Design known as ‘Structure’ and ‘Surface’. Structural Textiles include woven and knitted textiles where the structure and pattern of the cloth is formed from and by using yarn or thread. Surface Textiles include printed and embroidered textiles where pattern and interest is applied to the surface of an existing cloth using a variety of methods and processes.
The programme aims to create highly specialised subject experts in an ‘expert amongst experts’ environment which values the interactive, synergetic and ever evolving nature of Textile Design.
