Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Required Prior Study

Successful completion of GRAP2858 Introduction to Textile Design Practice.

Alternatively, you may be able to demonstrate the required skills and knowledge before you start this course.


Course Description

Within textile design, hybrid and interdisciplinary processes are emerging to evolve current industry practices to better align with the goals of sustainable development.  

This course will immerse you in an interdisciplinary, experimental and playful environment to explore and speculate on future design practices, thinking, contexts and the role of the textile designer.  You will explore and combine a range of materials, digital technologies and traditional craft techniques to open new ways of conceptualising and constructing textile surfaces and form. You will also explore the relationship between 2d and 3d textile surface and form to develop and communicate design prototype concepts and multi-sensory experiences. 


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

Program Learning Outcomes 

In this course you will develop the following program learning outcomes:

PLO1: Demonstrate broad knowledge of textile design creation and production with depth and expertise in one or more areas of practice.

PLO2: Develop conceptual, creative, technical and digital skills to deepen and synthesise knowledge of textile design applications and technologies.

PLO3: Apply design skills and knowledge to examine, analyse and creatively respond to contemporary issues in both local and global textile production.


Course Learning outcomes 

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

CLO1: Identify and discuss contemporary developments and emerging trends in textiles, textile thinking and textile design practices. 

CLO2: Create and communicate design prototype concepts and multi-sensory experiences within a future design context. 


Overview of Learning Activities

Your learning will be facilitated via a range of in-class and online activities that will require both individual and collaborative engagement. Class activities promote your ability to explore design, investigate, analyse and understand textile design practice.


Overview of Learning Resources

RMIT will provide you with resources and tools for learning in this course through our online systems.

A list of recommended learning resources will be provided by your lecturer, including books, journal articles and web resources. You will also be expected to seek further resources relevant to the focus of your own learning.
