You will learn how to create textile - which is utilized in almost in every scene of our daily life - in fashion, as interior fabrics, wall papers, curtains, sofas, tablecloths, carpets, furniture, as well as in cars and public transportations .

Textile design consists of color, print, motif, fabric, 3D function, shape and resistance, meaning the textile design is rich in variety. Many kinds of drawing tools such as pens, oil paints, acrylic paints, silk-screens, woodblock printings, photo compositions, Photoshop or Illustrator using PC, and all these tools give the textile designer the unlimited possibility of freely expressing themselves.

In the Textile Design course at Accademia Riaci, you can learn batik, tie-dye, waterpaint, linoleum, geometric patterns, natural motif patterns, solarisation patterns, scenic photo patterns, knitted fabric design and the base of weaving, so you can create your actual work using any method of these expressions.
