Why study textiles?
Key topics in this programme are clothes design, fashion and textiles art. Active and practical use of fashion and textiles art will be emphasised. You can be your own fashion designer and work with textiles from idea to final product. Fashion design, pattern construction, materials theory, and exploration of materials form an important basis for creating good products, both with regard to clothing and artistic production. Research and development are also included in the programme.
