Summary

Students on this course cultivate an innovative view of surface design. They are challenged to ruthlessly explore pattern and decoration, reflecting on the social, cultural and aesthetic context for surface pattern design and textiles in the 21st century. New relationships like that of surfaces and light are being investigated, while new materials and technologies continually challenge designers to develop fresh ideas and methods. You can choose to focus purely on textile surfaces, the manipulation of fabric, exploration of tactile textile surfaces, embellishment, print and decoration. Students get to research and experiment with traditional techniques and new technology to create innovative textiles and surface pattern designs for a range of materials including ceramics, plastics, and paper. They use our cutting edge digital equipment to develop designs for wallpaper, tableware, floor coverings, interior products, stationary, giftware, garments and jewellery. We help our students find their own creative process and to develop their own direction and style which enables them to choose a rewarding career.
