About

Our Textile Design (Hons) course at Leeds Arts University 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.

Overview

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.

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • Year One — You‘ll engage with a number of themes and core skills, to explore and develop your practice in creative thinking and making, drawing, colour, and print. We will help you to identify, develop and express your own personal creative interests, aesthetic sensibilities and approaches to designing.
  • Year Two — Innovation, live briefs, industry competitions and employability are the focus along with an outward facing approach to briefs, through which we produce work for international shows and a global audience. You will be encouraged to develop a personal design ‘handwriting’ that you can apply to your choice of design and specialist interests.
  • Year Three — You will plan your own programme of work in response to your chosen specialist areas and design concerns. Through this you’ll develop the experience and professional portfolio you require to confidently present yourself to the design industry.
