The Bachelor of Art + Design (Fibers & Surface Design) is a four-year, studio-based, interdisciplinary undergraduate education. This educational experience integrates design thinking and the traditional arts with the design disciplines and current technologies to create aesthetic yet functional objects, experiences and environments. Students are encouraged to consider multicultural models in their conceptual investigations to formulate inclusive and innovative solutions to contemporary global issues.
The Fiber Design path focuses on a range of explorations, both functional and non-functional. They include: hand and digital weaving surface design, fabric design, hand and digital printing, hand and digital embellishment, construction, sculpture and installations. Student focus may range from the design of fabrics for hand production to the production of one-of-a kind art objects.
