In the 3D Design and Creative Practice programme of York College you will undertake a variety of live projects and collaborate with external partners within the city of York and the surrounding area. This will not only give you related work experience within your chosen field, it will also give you a unique opportunity to build good links with these companies and see the sort of work that they do on a day-to-day basis. Work in a range of materials is encouraged in the conviction that a breadth of experience is intrinsically valuable in developing students' aptitudes for making comparisons between different forms and functions, and for informing and enriching the work in contemporary crafts.

Our Approach

The course is essentially studio based in the belief that successful craft makers need studio time to develop and finesse their skills. One of our unique selling points is the integrated use of the workshops enabling students to work across and combine a wide range of materials and processes often developing unique and extraordinary skills.
