You'll be introduced to techniques through group demonstrations, samples, paper-based instructions, feedback and tutorials.

What will you gain?

By the end of this course you'll understand the importance of ethical approach to textiles.
You'll have a portfolio of new drawings and designs, plus examples of textiles.
You'll have real hand-on experience of what it is like to be a textiles student at university, and an understanding of what admissions tutors are looking for.

Level: Open to all

Entry requirement: You should have a passion for green issues and design, and an interest in developing your creative and technical skills.

Where you'll learn: You will be based in the School of Art and Design on the City Campus.

You will have access to an excellent range of facilities and equipment in the fashion studios, with industry-standard fashion tables, professional mannequins, and space to work on your sustainble designs and fabric manipulation.

You'll also have access to the library to use outside of your short course; whilst you can't reserve or take away books, you are welcome to use them as a resource for research and referencing.

Tutor profile: Theodora Prassa is a multidisciplinary textile and visual artist who has exhibited internationally.

She completed her MA in fashion and textile design at Nottingham Trent University, where she embraced both fine art practices and textile design and making.
