MA Textile Design at NUA concentrates on the fusion of creativity, craft skills and technological innovation.
You will be expected to work at the forefront of the discipline, embracing digital and technological advancements while developing a clear understanding of the market and commercial potential for your work.
Students are encouraged to stretch the boundaries of the discipline through creative engagement with materials, processes and concepts. Your tutors and workshop technicians are practitioners themselves with extensive and diverse experience in areas including: digital textile production, CAD for repeat design, laser cutting, illustration, dye and weave. You will benefit from this breadth and depth of experience, as you are encouraged to experiment and externalise your practice through exhibitions and national competitions.
Tutorials and research projects encourage debate and reflection on the environmental, ethical and social impact of textile design, which are ongoing themes of the course. Visiting industry guests will support your professional development and understanding of the range of pathways for practising designers in a rapidly evolving sector.
