Textile Design

Textiles are currently on the cutting edge of contemporary art and design practice, and CCA is home to one of the premier textile programs in the nation. In this hands-on studio, students learn to design and print cloth though experimentation with dye chemistry, resist methods, block printing, screen printing, and digital print technology.

Using both hand-drawn and computer-generated imagery, students research and develop images, colorways, repeat patterns, and layering effects to create personally expressive fabrics that can be applied to fashion, interior design, and fine arts.

Visits to Bay Area galleries and artist residencies enhance the studio experience.

Textiles is paired with Screenprinting.
