Description

This 3 week course will take students from 2D design to 3D construction of textiles for fashion. Studio and workshop sessions will be complemented by visits to places of interest, such as galleries and textile retailers.

Week 1 will concentrate on building design and research skills and understanding the role of the textile designer. Attention will be paid to developing your research with shop, museum and studio visits. You will be creating your artwork through primary and secondary research. 

Week 2 will be based in the workshop creating handmade textiles using techniques such as hand painting, silkscreen printing and dyeing. We will be using processes that are suitable for Fashion and Interior. 

Week 3 will be a continuation of Week 2 and we will also be exploring processes suitable for the Heatpress.
