Part-time Level 8 Fine Art Textiles Course at CIT Crawford College of Art and Design: Deadline for Applications Extended

Deadline: 1 September 2014

Additional places are now available in this unique and innovative part-time Level 8 Fine Art Textiles course.

Combining studio mentoring by Pamela Hardesty within a context of textiles history and theory taught by Sarah Foster, our course is ideal as a post-graduate route for artists who wish to enrich their practice with a grounding in a wide range of textiles; it is also great for textiles crafters who want to expand creatively their ground of skills within the challenge of third-level art college.


Our recent graduates are actively exhibiting nationally and internationally, in the U.K., Slovakia, China, and Korea.
