Work on display: Textile Design
Textile Design at Duncan of Jordanstone values practical knowledge learned through making. Students experiment with a wide range of materials to produce highly crafted material outcomes for a range of applications. These include developing textile design concepts and prototypes for a thriving industry as well as exploring the ways that practical knowledge can help solve bigger problems such as sustainability and pollution. In a traditional sense Textiles are synonymous with domesticity and the body and our students are actively encouraged to challenge perceived definitions within traditional parameters and beyond, in order to define the ‘new traditions’ that textiles occupy.
