The Textiles Studio at
Sheridan offers one of the few training programs in Canada for those
interested in pursuing a career as a professional craft practitioner.
With an excellent technologist, faculty and facilities, the studio is
focussed on developing each student to their full potential. During
a student’s time in the studio, they engage in a broad range of textile
techniques, including felt and paper making, heat-setting, dying,
printing, stitching and constructing surfaces. They also learn both mixed
media and digital surface design skills.
The focus of the studio is to enable students to design and create richly imaginative and creative textile work.
