The Surface Pattern and Textiles programme is a vibrant, multidisciplinary programme that focuses on an exploration of textiles, materiality, pattern and making in the contexts of fashion, interiors and for designled galleries. It is academically challenging, contemporary in outlook, and you will be taught a wealth of practical and technical skills, enjoying the design potential of our extensive innovative digital and traditional facilities.
We bring our students together to create a strong group identity, while the pathways allow you to choose a specialism. The studio culture is at the heart of the Surface Pattern and Textiles student experience, creating a professionally focused, collaborative learning environment that aims to mirror the workplace with a positive, engaging, open approach to working with others.
Our students graduate as designers and makers, ready to flourish in a range of creative jobs and enterprises, having had several significant live projects, exhibition experiences and industry liaisons embedded in their studies. This is a defining feature of our programme. Live projects have been run with Rolls Royce Bespoke Interiors, H&M Design, Eley Kishimoto London, Hallmark UK and Orangebox. The programme is dynamic, built to grow and mirror the creative industry you will pitch to, with employability at its core.
