Textiles is a subject which allows students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of a variety of Textile techniques and processes.



The nature of the course gives students the opportunity to develop and explore function as well as creating decorative responses to a chosen theme.


The exploration of the visual and tactile qualities of textiles make the subject exciting. Links with artists, designers and craftspeople help inspire students to communicate original ideas and produce pieces showing clear technical competence.


Students should be willing to develop work independently as well as using unusual techniques to gather research and ideas.


Through the course students will experience links to the industry and develop a number of skills which can be used in further education or future careers.
