About this program

Textile Design BDes (Hons)

Learn about textiles through hands-on experimentation and design thinking. You will explore the role of textiles within society and investigate areas such as the social and environmental impact of textiles, health and well-being, and inclusive design.

As part of a vibrant studio and workshop culture, you will develop skills in traditional textile processes like screen printing and knit and stitch, alongside more contemporary technologies like 3D printing and laser cutting. Through these mediums you will build and expand your knowledge of colour, structure, pattern, and form.

Dundee is a UNESCO City of Design and home to the V&A Dundee. The city has a rich textile history, and many of our graduates establish themselves in the surrounding area, as well as across the world.

Our students and graduates regularly win top awards through live industry briefs, international competitions and at the annual graduate showcase, New Designers.
