The first part of this course will be devoted to gaining a basic knowledge of the available materials and structures and learning to make informed and responsible choices.  Having learned what is necessary to make a textile do its job from a practical perspective, the course will then  focus on the aesthetic  considerations covering the fields  of manipulation, surface design  (printing and embroidery) and nets/lace-like fabrics (cut work, devoré). The students will then choose a specific situation for which to design a textile based  on the previously acquired information and skills and produce a mini  project outlining the reasons  for their  choices and illustrating this with samples.


This course is designed for final-year university students and for those with some working experience in the field of fashion who wish to explore new opportunities combining strategy and creativity.
