The Textiles major provides for a broad range of textile studies, studio practice and research, and prepares students for careers as textile artists, designers, small business producers, teachers, curators, community artists and for employment in public art. With active academic staff, excellent technical facilities and located close to Australia's national collecting institutions, the Workshop provides an excellent study environment. Creative and innovative approaches to textiles based on a thorough technical understanding of the medium and knowledge of the historical and contemporary context are presented.
