The Masters in Knitwear Design introduces designers to the world of knitted fabric in all its varieties, from handmade to industrial production, encouraging innovation through experimental research and hands-on experience.

Designers get a taste of how to use knitting machines to see how each type of knitting is created, which thread to choose, the design effects they can achieve and the type of finishes and production needed to attain the best and most innovative results.

The course is an opportunity to explore and understand the link between different styles of knitting and contemporary global markets, trends and traditions so as to forge their own design philosophy and identity within this specific and challenging discipline.
