New Designers

Arts University Bournemouth

Course name : BA (Hons) Textiles
Section :
The work presented at New Designers 2019, demonstrates the enthusiasm and diligence that the BA (Hons) Textiles graduating cohort have employed over the past 3 years. Our vision is to inspire and encourage the individual creative textile designer maker through the reflection and refinement of their practice, enabling them to position themselves at the forefront of creative design. Our emphasis as a course has been placed upon strong craft and making skills coupled with innovation and technology. We have promoted a broad range of textiles skills, whilst asking the students to focus upon the context and market in which their personalised developments fall. Our focus is one of creativity in context, encouraging enterprise, initiative and enquiry in readiness for a career within the breadth of creative textiles.
