Fibres & Material Practices (BFA)

Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)


Why study Fibres & Material Practices?

If you are interested in the technical and creative potential of the textile arts, then our program is a place for you to develop a personal voice in this dynamic form of expression. Drawing from a rich heritage of materials and processes, we encourage new ways of thinking. You'll consider current issues of sustainability, new technologies, labour and craft, along with experimental approaches and global and historical implications. You'll also imagine how material practice can be used to communicate your individual identity in contemporary culture.

Our professional facilities include a fibre structures studio for weaving, felt-making and basketry; a print and dye workshop; and a papermaking studio. As a student in this program, you'll benefit from:

  • Small classes promoting personal expression and critical discussion
  • An open and inclusive environment that encourages interdisciplinary approaches
  • Freedom to pursue thematic and material interests
  • Independent study at the advanced level
  • Professional internships and other opportunities to enhance your technical expertise

You’ll leave our program with an expert combination of technical processes and the critical faculties of a contemporary artist.
