You will be encouraged to develop your design understanding through personalised research and themes. Ideas can then be explored through the print workshop and various printing methods to build a body of fabric samples.

During the two semesters, you will build on your knowledge and improve your understanding of the design process. 

You will be given the freedom to explore all printing techniques throughout the course. You are encouraged to keep a visual diary, which reflects your personal practice, individual interests and the work of other artists. This becomes a personal journal of creative development during the course.

 

Design drawing, class talks, group/individual discussions and studio-based practice are all methods of course delivery.

A complete health and safety induction will take place on commencement of the course.
