Description:MA Textile Futures is now called MA Material Futures. We’ve always believed ‘textiles’ to encompass a broad approach to materiality, and to better reflect the multidisciplinary nature of our work we have changed our course title.

MA Material Futures explores the intersection of craft, science and technology encouraging students to look beyond existing boundaries to anticipate future needs, desires, and challenges. Taking materiality as the starting point of the design process we integrate high and low technological materials and processes, pursuing relevant applications across fashion, architecture, product design, and communication & critical design. Observing and analysing how we live today allows us to consider how we can live better tomorrow. Considering the current and future context of design decisions is core to our ethos, combining social, political and economic inquiry to inform future, sustainable design applications.
