Sheridan’s Craft and Design Textiles Studio incorporates a full range of textile processes and techniques to take ideas from design to creation.
Design and create outstanding work
Our Textiles Studio provides a range of traditional and contemporary techniques and methods. Learning from design professionals in our state-of-the-art facilities, you’ll get hands-on experience in 2D and 3D fibre-specific approaches, including printing, weaving, dyeing, off-loom techniques, digital design and sewing. We foster and encourage experimentation and exploration of the fibre medium.
Sheridan`s commitment to sustainable practices
With growing awareness of sustainable industry practices, the Textiles Studio is committed to doing our part. We purchase our dyes from reputable suppliers and grow and harvest our own natural dyes in our Dye Garden, right here on campus. You’ll also help to care for our Dye Garden, making a positive environmental impact and embracing greener textile practices.
Get a foundation in all Craft and Design studios
This program provides a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to Craft and Design. You’ll major in your studio of choice while building skills in the four other disciplines. You’ll work with students and faculty from across all five studios on interdisciplinary projects that bring together a range of expertise and experiences to explore the potential of contemporary art, craft and design.
As a Textiles major, you’ll work in one of North America’s leading facilities. Our creative, supportive learning environment makes the Sheridan Textiles Studio an ideal place to prepare for your future.
This program contains a mandatory internship for all students during the summer (May-August) between the 3rd and 4th years.
Internships are a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with work experience within a professional environment. Internship work terms are related to the academic studies of the student and may be paid or unpaid. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
Whether you become an independent artist, seek studio employment or pursue graduate studies, we prepare you for your career through interdisciplinary projects, work placement programs, field trips, industry visits, competitions, visiting artists and lecturers, research and studio-based work.
