You will have full access to all the faculty workshops. A large print room is within the dedicated subject area with extensive facilities for dyeing and printing. There is a broad range of woven and knit equipment, sewing machines, digital embroidery facilities, heat transfer plotter and cutter. A digital production facility and CAD suites will allow you to engage with cutting edge production.
