With our open learning approach, the OCA’s Textiles degree courses provide a real alternative to traditional campus based learning. Our inspiring course materials enable you to work at your own pace, in your own time, and whenever you choose to study.
The BA (Hons) Textiles degree programme will develop your textiles arts practice with a wide range of media and techniques. You will also develop your creative capacities in the interpretation and application of imagery, tactile awareness and understanding of the theoretical and conceptual issues central to the practice of textile art. Course units at levels 1 and 2 guide you through stages to develop innovative work, showing technical, creative and analytical skills by using a structured approach that is process driven. The units at level 3 enable you to focus on your personal interests to further develop your own individual voice.
