This BA (Hons) Fine Art Textiles course is designed to help you to develop your fine art textiles skills and progress your career opportunities in this field.
Based at Moray School of Art in Elgin, or Orkney College UHI, you will explore a range of fine art and textiles media, both traditional and non-traditional, that will enhance your skills and enable you to apply them to individual project work. You will be offered your own studio space from the second year onwards, with access to excellent fine art textiles resources. The tutor practitioners, who have expertise in a broad range of specialist areas, will be close at hand to give you regular input and guidance to help you achieve your full potential.
Our strong links with the cultural sector (including galleries, museums and arts organisations) and a varied and full programme of visiting lecturers will ensure you are kept up-to-date with contemporary practice, as well as providing you with useful links to other artists and professionals.
Your learning will be research based and you will develop your practice through diverse studio work and the opportunity to participate in cultural trips.

I‘d like to become a professional artist and educator and elements of the course where, for example, I took part in a collaborative art project in Iceland were really helpful as a means towards this. I like the friendly staff and the community feel around the college. The flexibility and availability of funding makes it possible for me to study even around my kids and family.
