Q5. What do you enjoy about your course of study at the University of Huddersfield?

A5. The BA Textiles Design course at the University of Huddersfield allows you the opportunity to develop your work in whatever direction you choose be that weave, print or in my case embroidery. The facilities within the faculty of laser cutters, sewing machines, looms etc. are all first class and together with the outstanding support and direction provided by the lecturers all the ingredients for success are there. It is simply down to me as student to apply myself.
