We are so lucky to have specialists in Textiles, you can see from the amazing 6F work that the students have been truly inspired… Students experiment with photographic screen printing processes to make wall paper and hangings, constructed textiles though knitting and weaving, appliqué, wax, touching, dyeing, and creating their own fabrics ready to be made into fashion or household items. The key though, is the process of making the beautiful fabrics.
