Lecturer in Textile Design

School of Fashion and Textiles

Clare Langford is currently third year coordinator of the Textile Design Programme and teaches Constructed Textiles on L5 (second year) and L6 (third year).

Having graduated with a first class honours in Constructed Textiles (specialising in weave) Clare went on to win a number of awards including an RSA Design Award which took her to the Kawashima Textile School in Japan. She went on to develop a career as a designer maker, exhibiting work at a number of nationally recognised galleries and craft fairs and being shortlisted for the Crafts Council British Crafts in Japan Award, before starting her career as a lecturer. She has dedicated the last 18 years to teaching in Higher Education and brings her passion for weave, material development and fun learning approaches to her teaching position.

Clare has played a leading role in developing student employability through the organisation of student work placements and the development of industry links and live project collaborations. Her lecturing experience spans across all three levels and disciplines of the textile design programme.

Within her own practice and research interests she maintains a strong focus on material exploration, transformation and the making process. Her approach often involves working with heat responsive materials in the creation of new surfaces.
