Fashion and Textile Design



In this subject students explore colour and pattern as a means to challenge the traditional practices of textile design. The work of key designers and artists is introduced and students engage with experimental approaches to colour through textiles. Where relevant the subject is linked to exhibition site visits and research develops around the study of international exhibitions and practices. Research informs the student engagement with the practice of textile installation and environments. A series of lectures and workshops contextualises textiles as an interdisciplinary practice and enables students to apply knowledge into a self-directed project for site-specific application. An emphasis throughout the subject is placed on a professional and sustainable print room practice.
