More about Laura
What made you choose to study at NTU?
"I chose to study at NTU as I had heard good things about the textile course. Additionally, I found the staff to be friendly when I came for my interview as well as seeing the School of Art & Design had a good textile department.
What did you enjoy most about your course?
"The thing I enjoyed most within the course was the opportunities we had to explore different area, print, embroidery and knit."
Where are you currently working since graduating from NTU?
"Since my graduation in 2011, I have been working at David Howard – a men’s shirt supplier. I am now a senior designer within their design team."
How did BA (Hons) Textile Design help you to secure your role at David Howard?
"The course helped me to produce good samples within weave – the samples successfully showed my technical ability, use of colour and understanding of weave."
Why would you recommend your course?
"I would recommend studying BA (Hons) Textile Design because of how varied it is, yet at the same time is very detailed in all aspects of what you may choose to specialise in. Overall, Nottingham is a great cultural city to live in, the people are great and I felt a real sense of community during my time at NTU."
