On this course, physical making and material investigation are at the core of our student experience. Through highly structured intensive technical workshops in a purpose-built and fully equipped facility, you’ll gain the opportunity to learn – in your own dedicated workspace – from highly qualified technical tutors, how to develop and realise your ideas and designs.
In parallel to the strong technical elements this course provides, you’ll be encouraged – through specific design projects – to develop your own interests and form your personal creative direction. You’ll be taught how to undertake creative research, and to observe, document, hypothesise, develop and resolve projects to a high standard.
Throughout your studies you’ll be supported through regular technical reviews, group critiques and one-to-one tutorials with faculty staff and highly regarded industry professionals to talk about your work, share and learn how to develop projects and concepts professionally.
We’re passionate about learning and we foster a supportive environment which is stimulating and challenging for our students. The teaching staff are all practising designer makers and are highly regarded within their profession, ensuring that the syllabus is constantly evolving to meet the latest professional demands.
You’ll also benefit from specialist master classes from invited guest tutors, giving you unique opportunities to learn highly specialist techniques from leading practitioners. Long-standing links with industry and leading organisations such as The Goldsmiths’ Company, l Trust and The British Art Medals Society will give you the chance to take part in national and international competitions and placements. Live projects with industry will give you invaluable professional experience.
