Overview

Grow your passion for textiles and enhance your skills and techniques in a range of practices

Whilst studying BA (Hons) Fine Art with Textiles, you will be supported to explore the nature of textiles as a medium alongside more traditional fine art practices. Access to technical workshops will enable you to achieve the highest quality art production and become specialised in the development of textile-based work.

The programme encompasses a variety of skills and techniques enabling you to develop professional approaches to a range of making processes. Workshops will introduce you to weaving, stitch, embroidery, felt-making, dying, knitting and give you demonstrations in techniques and processes such as pattern cutting.

You will explore the very contemporary shift towards textiles as a medium that can be understood in spatial and three-dimensional terms. Elements of other 2D and 3D practices including surface, colour, collage, flat surfaces, as well as sculptural approaches (structural textiles, 3D hangings, mixed media) will be tested. Studying textiles embraces fine art exploration and interacts with sculpture, painting, printmaking and installation work.

Main studio, workshop skills and activities include:

  • Felt-making
  • Weaving
  • 3D constructed textiles
  • Tapestry
  • Embroidery
  • Dyeing
  • Colour and surface
  • Installation and live art: appropriated materials, site-based and gallery-based work
  • Drawing: drawing is seen as important element in the development and realisation of ideas and is the basis of the initial studio work
  • Digital

Why Study Fine Art?

Undertake a degree at the forefront of creativity and artistic vision

7 Reasons to choose the University of Chichester:

1. Chichester and Bognor Regis
A city full of Art & Culture, a busy Student Union, the dramatic landscape of the South Downs, with the seaside at Bognor Regis and West Wittering. A free inter-campus bus is available to take you back and forth between each campus.

2. The course
The structure allows you to choose which skills to develop, which aspects of Critical and Cultural Theory to focus on, and to self-determine the direction of your own practice. You will learn to create your own negotiated pattern of work as you move towards an exhibition for the degree show in your final year. The result is that you will become knowing, versatile and highly creative. Work placements and final year career advice leads to jobs.

3. Your studio space
As a full-time Fine Art student you will have personal studio space throughout the year.

4. There’s no house style
Abstract, Landscape, Figure or Conceptual – Traditional, Contemporary or Avant Garde – Painting, Textiles, Printmaking, Sculpture, Video, Photography, Installation, Performance Art etc – you decide what to do and we support you in working out how to do it with panache.

5. The facilities
Home for the Fine Art Department is the St. Michael’s building comprising studio and workshop facilities, to enable you to make the best use of your talents and potential and high-tech 3D workshops in the Tech Park, giving us access to digital technologies like 3D scanning, 3D printing, laser cutting, and a variety of creative software for still and moving image. It is open from 8.00am to 8.30pm, Monday to Saturday, with First year students having sessions programmed on 4 days out of 5.

6. Our staff
As well as supporting student development, our Fine Art staff are active practicing professional artists and researchers who regularly exhibit or publish their work; their research leads the BA programmes. On most weeks there’s a visiting professional artist. Each student has an Academic Advisor and we have an excellent Disability and Dyslexia Team to ensure that ALL students are able to pass their degrees at the appropriate level.

7. Your interview
We are inclusive and welcoming; we judge you on your folder, not your background. If you are invited for interview you will have a choice of it being face-to-face with physical folio OR online with digital folio, always friendly and non-intimidating.

BA (Hons) Fine Art with Textiles

“This course has been amazing for me. Throughout my first year I learnt what kind of artist I was; developed my way of thinking and the way I work. The staff are supportive and willing to spend time talking to you about your work and helping you through any problems that you might have. I have really enjoyed the course so far and look forward to continuing my second and third year.”

The Course

You will study a selection of core and optional modules each year. Each module is worth a number of credits and you will study 360 credits throughout your degree. This list is indicative and subject to change.

Select a year

Studio Practice One

Studio based learning is by one-to-one or group tutorial, small group discussion and cross level peer group. There are visiting lectures most weeks who do a talk about their own work and offer you tutorials. You will be set a series of experimental research and drawing based activities that will challenge your ideas about 2D and 3D art and gently drive you towards the beginnings of a self-directed material practice and greater independence.

Teaching and Assessment

Learn in a student-centred environment and thrive as an artist

You will be taught through small lectures and seminars along with peer group critiques in the studio which will support your independent, self-directed work. You will learn to create your own negotiated pattern of work as you move towards an exhibition for your degree show in your final year.

You will experience a wide variety of approaches to learning through core and optional modules that build to form an incremental approach to fine art practice. The development of knowledge and skills is encompassed through the use of a wide range of materials, media and processes in studio and workshop activity to develop your practical skills and subject knowledge. The integration of the cultural, critical and theoretical debate and inquiry provides you with the ability to contextualise your work within academic frameworks.

You will experience a combination of practical assessment (including a public degree show at the end of year three), report writing, essays and presentations, using clear assessment criteria that reflect achievement.

Careers

Turn your passion for art into a career

As a Fine Art with Textiles student, you will undertake external projects and receive careers advice so you are prepared to pursue your desired career or to undertake postgraduate study. This course prides itself in embedding creativity in all it’s components and communication skills centrally within the degree programme. The course offers students further key skills that are both useful for artists but, more importantly, are life-skills that will help them in varied employment situations.
