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, devorÃ©). 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.
