About the courseOur BA (Hons) Textile Design degree courses nurture fresh thinking and industry-ready creatives through a dynamic and carefully structured three year programme. Many students enjoy the challenge of creating fabrics from scratch. Our Knit and Weave option lends itself to methodical thinkers who have a good understanding of materials and enjoy their transformation. The focus is on construction in all its forms knitting, knotting, linking, crossing, weaving and tufting. Whilst drawing is still key, students learn to use it creatively to plan and problems-solve, to support ideas that often develop directly through sampling. From hand-construction approaches to using industry-standard digital weave equipment and three-dimensional printing, there is the scope to experiment and innovate. Studying with us will provide you with the skills, insights and experiences required to succeed in a broad scope of professional textile related roles. Knit and Weave students secure placements with design studios, mills, manufacturers and retailers companies who need expertise in knowing about the properties of materials, how they function and react. By the end of your degree you will have a clear vision of where you fit in the industry and a tailored professional portfolio to take with you. Our BA Hons) Textile Design: Knit and Weave graduates are employed in both technical and creative roles, as Knitwear Designers, Weave Designers, Designer Makers, Studio Designers and Trend Forecasters. They also take up other roles where their material sensitivity, creativity and problem-solving is valued.
