The BA (Hons) Textiles Design course has a vibrant hands-on approach. You'll explore a wide range of textile techniques and surface pattern design. With a strong emphasis on experimentation.
You'll experiment with techniques such as dye, weave, transfer printing, foiling, stitch and digital design. Interpreting them using unexpected technologies and materials. And you’ll create new designs that are at the forefront of textile design.
Our specialist, technician supported, facilities include; digital embroidery, digital fabric printing, laser cutting, rug tufting, intaglio and screen-printing.

Textile Design course facilities
- When size? established links with higher education, one of the immediate goals of size? syllabus was to approach and get involved with the very best fashion and creative arts talent in the UK, so we were made up with the addition of UCLan, with officially one of the best fashion departments in the UK, to our size? syllabus programme. The main aim of the Syllabus is to impart industry level standards, learning and practice in a live brief format to students, who are then given the support and tools from size? to respond. At size? we want to unearth the next generation of creatives and by offering this platform in the form of size? Syllabus we believe students involved stand the best possible chance of making their way into the industry, able to utilise the invaluable learnings taught during their time answering the Syllabus briefs
