Textile & Surface Design aims to develop our student’s full creative potential as a designer of the textiles and surfaces that will surround us in the future.

Throughout the programme our students develop their knowledge and expertise through the use of traditional and new design and production processes. Students are encouraged to challenge the possibilities for textile and surface design and develop a broad range of skills that will allow them to pursue a career in the textile and surface design industries for fashion, accessories, interiors and the broader design field.

The programme is driven by design briefs and producing design outcomes for fabrics and other materials and surfaces. NCAD offers a range of facilities for realising textile design work including digital print, screen print, transfer print, constructed textiles, loom-weaving, knit and laser cutting, which enable our graduates to fully develop their textile and surface designs.
