We have loved having the students back at WSA and see them flourish under our blended learning methods and we have adapted to all the changes and lockdowns with creativity and continued our community online.

On this website we showcase work from all three years and share what is inspiring us at the moment. Please enjoy our site and get in touch if you’d like any information or to arrange a visit, if you have any questions about applying please get in touch via our contact page.

BA Textile Design will nurture your creative, practical and professional skills. Having explored different aspects of textile design in year one, you’ll choose to specialise in woven, knitted or printed textiles, learning traditional manual processes alongside cutting-edge digital techniques. Part of a vibrant, creative art school campus, you’ll have access to superb studio space and equipment, such as 3 Shima Seiki computerised knitting machine and Dubied knitting machines, a Mimaki printer and a range of looms including a TC2 digital loom. The programme includes an exciting opportunity to spend a semester working on live company briefs, or studying textile design overseas or to take a year out to spend in industry.
