Fashion and Textile Design



This subject explores both analogue hand silk screen and digital print design for fashion and textiles. Students are introduced to screen preparation, repeats, industry textile print layouts, stencils, over printing, pigment and specialty inks, photographic transfer, half tone, colour ways, sublimation and digital printing. In this subject print design moves beyond 'decoration' to become a platform to explore contemporary narratives that reflect the social and cultural conditions of our times. A series of lectures introduce students to a new wave of emerging designers who are discovering new aesthetic opportunities in the space in between the analogue and digital materialities. In all the textile subjects we work together to keep reviewing, developing and maintaining a sustainable, mindful and professional practice.
