This course introduces students to contemporary textiles and their relationship to fashion. Theoretical and practical aspects of textiles and fashion are covered through lectures on the concepts, work and ideas of leading textile artists and designers. The theoretical component deals with the context in which contemporary artists work, the conceptual basis for their work and how historical and social references are made.
The practical component enables students to become familiar with some of the elementary techniques used by leading practitioners to make textile and fashion items. The emphasis of the course is on creating textiles and surface designs for textiles and fashion rather than garment construction. Students learn some basic techniques in embroidery and the surface design processes of dyes, dyeing and printed textiles.

Note/s: Paddington Campus.
