Overview

In the (Hons) Textiles in Practice course from Manchester Metropolitan University, you will be taught from within core pathways offering the opportunity to specialise or combine the disciplines of print, weave, knit, embroidery and mixed media. We promote and encourage the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary practice where processes and techniques combine and complement one another. Specialist workshop provision offers hands-on traditional machinery and the latest digital technologies, supported by expert academic and technical staff who are actively engaged in research and are professional designers and artists. Emphasis is placed on the development of personal interests and ambitions that reflect the breadth, versatility and potential of textiles within contemporary art and design contexts.

Careers

Past textile graduates hold key creative positions in organisations such as Habitat, Paul Smith, Aardman Animations and ASOS or are self-employed as designers and practicing as artists. Some are in postgraduate education at the Royal College of Art, London College of Fashion and at Manchester Metropolitan University. Many are teachers in schools and academics in universities and art schools in the UK and overseas.
