Tutor Textile Design

0,2 fte

What will you do?
One of the core talents to be developed during our 4-year bachelor program is the personal artistic handwriting of each student. The Textile Design course continuously trains the student to develop materials based on a personal fascination that can be given shape and a place in a contemporary world. How can tactility, shape and color relate physically to a society that is subject to many and rapid changes and in which students take up a position.

The relationship with the fashion industry is evident but not self-evident. A broader perspective on Textiles is necessary to develop an authentic and relevant vision that can bring innovation and meaning. Students observe, discover and capture shape, proportions and expressions. Combined with a wide range of techniques and use of materials, the student acquires a wide range of technical skills and an understanding of how to translate these into a three-dimensional or a unique two-dimensional expression.

Spread over four years various subjects continuously develop: shape, relationship to the human body, physical expression, materials, colours, composition, techniques etc. Through experimentation and reflection, goal is to develop a unique style and method of working in close connection to the other courses offered that inspires, supports and communicates the student’s personal fascination and vision.
