The Design: Textiles MA course at Bath Spa University develops student's creative design practice and explores research in knit print, fashion, interiors and textile design.
The programme of study allows you to freely develop creative design practice and thinking in conjunction with valuable marketing and business skills, building comprehensive understanding, vision and direction.
The emphasis of the course is learning how best to present ideas, and where and how to place them in the market. Students develop and propose a personal route of study and explore and research an area of textiles in knit, print, laser cutting and embroidery for fashion, interiors or textile art.
You're encouraged to trial a product in the market either through first-hand experience, shops, and craft markets (for designer-makers) or with galleries or public spaces (for textile artists).
You will graduate with a market-ready final collection or product range as well as the skills necessary to succeed in your chosen specialism and career destination. Alumni enjoy diverse career destinations with many successfully working for themselves.
