Textile Design

Reid Building, 23 students

Textile Design at The Glasgow School of Art encourages learning from heritage techniques and innovation through process, material, colour and design. We offer the opportunity to study weave, knit, print and embroidery before specialisation in one of these pathways. Responsible design continues to evolve and inform approaches, practices and outcomes.

The work of the Textile Design 2024 cohort demonstrates unique exploration of ideas, concepts, technical processes and materials towards individual interests and creative aspirations. Project starting points are diverse, from nature and the built environment to film references and artefacts found in museums, archives and personal collections. Topics explored through Design History and Theory critical journals, essays, and dissertations inform and intersect with ideas investigated through textile design practice to contribute to and challenge the discipline.
