Textiles MA Royal College of Art



Course info


Textiles at the RCA is a multi-faceted discipline, and we work at the creative interface between materials, making and meaning. Our focus is on new knowledge that impacts many sectors, exploring new territories for tomorrow’s textiles specialist.

New fabrication methods and specialist textile skills offer fresh possibilities for the world and require us to constantly reconsider our practice, generating a culture of experimentation and creative possibility throughout the activities of the programme.

We encourage our students to develop an agility in their thinking and creative capability with colour and materials. The programme is an exploration of the creative, technological, cultural, commercial and sustainable contexts of textiles, and you’ll develop innovative ideas that challenge the understanding of the practice and discipline of textiles. By graduation, you’ll be fluent in the language of materials, able to influence the tangible and intangible materiality of our lives across a range of sectors.
