This course offers a fresh approach to costume design. Working from classic and contemporary texts, you’ll investigate design, textiles and construction techniques to give you a thorough grounding in all aspects of costume. We’ll look at experimentation in costume design and illustration, textile artistry, advanced pattern cutting and construction techniques, bespoke garment fitting and final costume realisation. You’ll also develop professional costume skills such as text/music/ character analysis, visual and contextual research methods, presentation practice and applying reflection and evaluation to your work. Our design, construction and textiles studios are home to facilities which help bring your ideas to life including CAD and traditional and contemporary embroidery and printing techniques including hand crafting, laser cutting, digital printing and 3D printing.
