Textile Design

Are you creative and imaginative? Do you like exploring ideas? Do you enjoy making? If so, you should consider a course in textile design. You will enjoy developing your understanding of the visual world, learn practical skills and responding to ideas and issues in ways that are personal to you.


The textile design course offers the opportunity to develop skills over a broad range of textile and fashion techniques and applications, such as printing, knitting, mixed media, digital applications, surface design, embroidery and installations.   

Practical work is produced by researching and developing ideas using drawing, digital exploration, sketchbooks supported by critical evaluation and an awareness of contemporary and historical influences. 

Possible degree opportunities include Textile Design, Fashion Design, Fashion and Business, Fashion Journalism and Fashion Communication. Studying a textile design related degree will give you opportunities in costume design, fashion design, fashion illustration, fashion styling, fashion journalism, retail buying, teaching, textile design and theatre design. 


The Rugby School community will physically re-unite in September. We are proud of our staff and students who have engaged in a full, virtual timetable enabling us all to flourish during this challenging time. Plans for a safe return of the whole School community will involve comprehensive risk assessments and a commitment to the BSA COVID-SAFE Charter. Find out more about our bespoke virtual visits and Open Days here
