Program Overview

Program Description:

This practical course combines the two interconnected disciplines of fashion and textiles through the medium of knitted fabric design. It's aimed at anyone interested in creating knitted fabric and exploring its potential within a fashion garment.

You'll experience industry-level resources, explore design processes, extend your portfolio and create some amazing new work. And all this takes place in the centre of Nottingham, a city famous for its textile and fashion heritage.

During this course you’ll learn about and experiment with knitted fabric design, fashion knitwear trend research, yarn and material awareness, knitted garment construction techniques and digital knit workshops. Supporting your studio work will be visits to galleries to find creative inspiration, and a visit to a local knitwear manufacturer. You will also see the future of smart knitted textile technology.

You will work on projects which will enhance your knowledge of garment specification and terminology, enabling you to understand the potential in taking a piece from concept to manufacture.

By the end of the course, you will have the expertise to produce samples on the Dubied knitting machine, the ability to design, knit and construct a garment, and be part of a network of knit practitioners.

“I really enjoyed the process of making – using the machines and learning new techniques – seeing samples grow and develop.” M, Australia
