Module overview

This module introduces you to Textile Design through the areas of printed, woven and knitted textiles. The introduction to the three specialist areas of the programme will allow you to use a range of research methods and media exploration to generate ideas, which will be explored through introductory workshop skills, materials and processes across the three specialisms. This will enable you to make choices regarding the more specialist direction of your practice. As well as engaging in creating your practical work, you will learn how your contextual knowledge and critical thinking will help you develop and enhance your work. You will be able to engage in exciting skills you may not have explored before. This module will also give you the opportunity to gain confidence within a specialism and experience new ways of thinking and making.
