Summary

The MA Textile Design programme will encourage you to be experimental, to stretch the boundaries and focus on taking your textile design skills to the next level. Taught by industry-experienced tutors and supported by our dedicated technicians, you’ll learn techniques such as print, embroidery and Devore, with access to superb facilities including traditional print rooms, laser cutting, dye labs, illustration and mac suites. Alongside this you’ll gain the contextual knowledge and critical research skills that will underpin your work through core topics such as sketchbook development, visual and market research and considerations of sustainability. Our staff are committed to helping you realise your own creative ideas and you will develop the ability to inquire into and reflect on contemporary life; whether your interests lie in textiles for fashion, interior design or as a medium for art pieces, you’ll receive plenty of individual support.

The programme includes extensive industry exposure through guest lectures, live project briefs and visits to trade events, and staff will work closely with you to help you develop your individual strengths and enhance your employability. Using their industry connections, tutors can also facilitate internship opportunities with leading fashion and textile companies and the opportunity to showcase your work in Winchester and London.

You’ll graduate with a portfolio that demonstrates your creative talents and technical accomplishments, as well as the industry-specific knowledge that will enable you to pursue a successful career in textile design.
