Our Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design course has an outstanding reputation for producing innovative, professional designers. We look for talented, hard-working people who will develop their own ‘handwriting’, both anticipating and setting future trends within this field.
You’ll work in our open plan studios alongside your peers where we foster a culture of creativity alongside a strong work ethic. We adopt a broad approach to specialist aspects of the discipline, which includes print, digital, textiles and innovative surfaces. You will use our specialist workshops for screen-printing, dyeing, digital printing, laser-cutting, material innovation and more, in addition to utilising industry-standard software for creative design in our Mac suites.
We love creativity, critical thinking and design in all its guises, but equally we recognise the desire to make a living doing something so wonderful, which is why we place a strong value on offering real world experiences and employability. You will be given opportunities to experience industry-standard trade fairs which in the past have included Indigo (Paris), MoOD (Belgium), Surtex (USA), and New Designers (London). You will also have opportunities to participate in a number of live briefs, competitions and employment related activities to ensure that you are as best prepared for industry as possible.
