Start date

3 years
Dundee City Campus

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.

“One of the main reasons I applied to Duncan of Jordanstone is because of the connection you get with your tutor. My tutor has really encouraged me to make exciting things and go in directions that I never really thought I could go. It’s brilliant to have that kind of support.”

Emma Collins, Textile Design graduate
