Course summary

Our MA Textiles course, based at UCA Epsom,, will develop your individual research into textile art, culture, craft and design, enabling you to combine your experience of textiles practice with a personal project. You will be encouraged to challenge yourself, to explore and transform your own work using new materials, processes, techniques and ideas to emerge with a renewed sense of personal vision. This fresh perspective and sense of self will aid you as you embark on your career as a freelance design professional, curator, gallery director or textile designer. You'll benefit from our links with established artists and designers drawn from a multi-national cohort. Our team comprises eminent professors, visiting scholars, academics and associate lecturers, experienced practitioners, designer-makers, artists and researchers who work in the industry, produce commissions, regularly exhibit and are published internationally. The course programme includes opportunities to work on live projects with established galleries. The content of lectures and seminars focuses on professional practice, and you can expect to hear from high profile guest speakers from art, craft, industry and design practices.
