Does Textile Design and Craft focus on fashion and clothing?

Textile Design and Craft has an artistic and investigative focus. However, our education does not have a fashion or clothing profile and we do not deal directly with sewing and pattern construction. However, we have a guest teacher for a few days cutting during a textile and costume project. The Textile Design and Craft program is the starting point for those aiming for a career in art, textile design, performing arts, costume and interior design.

On the other hand, we have had many students with fashion design dreams at Textile form, who have then gone on to Beckmans Designhögskola, Konstfack, the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, Textilhögskolan in Borås and who have since established themselves.

You don’t need to have worked with textiles before – curiosity about the material and its possibilities to shape your ideas will take you far!
