Design in Textiles Studio Practice 7


This is a 'follow-on' module from 'Textile Studio-6’.Learners attain advanced competencies with textiles both as a conceptual and technical process through which they can achieve their stated objectives. The key aim is to foster innovation and excellence in the production of textile art, artefact and design. Individual research strategies (already in place from Semester 7) are now deployed in the development of a major exhibition of textile work to be presented by the learner on completion of the module.Activities are underpinned by an emphasis on cognitive and communication skills as well as on the strengthening of professional expertise and standards expected by employers within the textile cultural - industry sector.There are three assessment points to include a seminar presentation by each learner.
