Do you have an interest in fashion or textiles design? This course offers the opportunity to explore your creative side though a range of specially delivered units of study that prepare you for progression into a creative discipline of your choice. Through studying fashion and design you have the opportunity to develop an inspirational approach to research, design and production of fashion and textiles pieces from concept to final realisation and produce a professional portfolio of your work to present to employers, college, university or to set up a creative venture of your own.

You’ll explore a number of creative disciplines, research the work of other artists and undertake projects to express a range of skills, completing final pieces for assessment as you progress.

You will help to organise and take part in a fashion show showcasing all the work achieved over the year.

During your course, we introduce you to using a range of digital technologies, which will help you get the most from your course and at the same time develop your digital skills. Find out more about key computing skills and essential student skills. 

Students should have at least 3 National 4 or 5s or equivalent. Previous experience of an art and design course or a passion for fashion and design would be desirable. All applicants will have the opportunity to present a folio of recent work. Mature students will be considered on merit.

We’ll be inviting you by email to attend course information sessions between now and the start of your course. We’d urge you to come along if at all possible.
