COURSE OVERVIEW
Our A-Level Textile Design course here at The Northern School of Art is for you if you are interested in a career in textile design. This gives you the opportunity to express yourself through functional or decorative manipulation of materials and fabrics.
COURSE DETAILS
You will learn from the work of practising textile and fashion designers, exploring textile specialisms such as print, knit, weave, macramé, embroidery, embellishment, fabric manipulation and moulage. You can then develop these techniques into either textile installation, or constructed textiles product outcome. Tutors are fully qualified practitioners and will help you to experiment with textile techniques. Each assignment theme is open to allow each individual student to develop a unique and personal response to each project with a textile outcome. You will work in a professional studio environment, where you will discover how to produce both exciting and innovative design work. On successful completion of an A-Level programme of study, which includes this course, you will have the skills and qualifications needed to progress onto a wide range of courses at foundation or degree level, or go directly into industry employment.
