Our MA Textiles course is built around developing your individual research into textile culture, craft and design. It will enable you to combine previous experience of textiles practice with a personal project.

As a student on our course, you'll be encouraged and supported through the process of exploration, interrogation, transformation and resolution. You'll question your own conventions of making, challenge your own assumptions about your work, innovate with materials, processes, techniques and ideas, and emerge from the postgraduate experience with a renewed sense of personal vision.

Our course team are practising researchers, involved in a range of textile practices, exhibiting and publishing internationally, including Professor Simon Olding and Professor Lesley Millar MBE.

You'll benefit from our links with established artists and designers drawn from an international cohort, as well as studio-workshops, galleries, and the Craft Study Centre. This is a purpose-built museum, research centre and gallery dedicated to crafts based at our Farnham campus.

On this course, you'll be taught through tutorials, lectures, seminars and critiques, supporting the development of your research and practice. As part of the course, you're expected to undertake some form of professional practice, such as a live brief, competition, application for a residency, funding or a work placement.
