'Made In Britain' is a label sought after throughout the world. The UK textile industry offers graduates an opportunity to work with businesses that range from fashion to interiors.
This course is perfect for you if you have a love of colour, pattern, texture, fabric, materials, surface design, making, decorative drawing, decoration, constructing, manipulating, and practical engagement.
Textiles is a huge global industry that constantly surrounds us, on floors, walls, furniture, clothing & fashion, gift-wrap, cards, and even car interiors. It is one of the largest design skill sets used globally.
In this course, you’ll learn practical, professional and entrepreneurial skills that equip you to work as part of a team, or even set up your own business in textiles.
You’ll study textiles in their widest sense and learn many skills, from print, stitch embellishment to dyeing and mixed media construction. You’ll have the opportunity to focus on a variety of specialist areas, including textiles for fashion, textiles for interiors and textiles for design/crafts.
Traditional skills are taught together with expertise in modern design development, production, and contemporary invention. Whether you go on to work for a retail brand or an international design house, we will prepare you for the challenges that the creative textile industry holds.
We've also formed an AUB textiles Agency to promote student work at Premiere Vision Paris and London Print Textile Trade Fairs. Students have engaged with industry – experiencing how the business buys and sells textiles.
