Heriot-Watt University's School of Textiles and Design is opening its virtual doors to the public as postgraduate students showcase their degree collections at the 2021 Degree Showcase.  

The event kicks off on Friday, 19 November, which welcomes guests to view an exhibition of students' projects showcased in a variety of individual exhibitions which incorporate videos, 3D galleries to explore, plus heartfelt messages and well wishes from Industry partners along with insights into our students processes this past year as to how they developed their final projects.

This year's theme is “RE IMAGINE” and postgraduate students from our Galashiels and Dubai campuses rose to the challenge of adapting to a digital environment whilst working through extraordinary times and all that they have conquered during their postgraduate year.

Professor Fiona Waldron, Head of School, said: “The annual Degree Showcase is a wonderful chance to celebrate the work of our students' who have shown remarkable ingenuity and adaptability in completing their projects in a particularly challenging environment for creative practice-based subjects. 

“I am incredibly proud of the achievements of both students and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic and we are delighted to be able to showcase their work virtually.” 

For years students have delivered innovative, creative and industry standard work which is celebrated in their end of year Degree show. Sadly, this year they have been unable to showcase their work at a live exhibition and runway show but their successes will certainly still be celebrated.
