The bachelor programme textile·art·design offers training in textile techniques, textile design and freelance art. The partly project-oriented organisation of the curriculum promotes the work with, and analysis of, textile phenomena in art and everyday culture and includes such areas as textile artefacts, textiles in space, on stage and for performances as well as fashion, textile and carpet design. Textiles are moreover understood as a means of communication and a medium for identity-building. Great importance is attached to experimentation in order to enable students to appropriate basic design competencies. Fundamental knowledge regarding material and processing techniques that are essential for work in both freelance art and industry are imparted in depth. The programme aims to convey the ability to implement simple artistic concepts.
The bachelor programme comprises six semesters and is a precondition for all further studies, in particular for the master programme textile·art·design.
