Course description

Craft employs over 100,000 people in the UK’s thriving creative industries and our 3D Design Crafts programme is central to a global resurgence in the craft and design industries. With a focus on designing and making through direct interaction with materials and processes, you’ll grow your passion through diverse material enquiries. You’ll have access to our purpose-built specialist fabrication workshops and will be able to explore digital making and 3D printing in our FabLab. The range of primary material practices include ceramics, fine metals, silversmithing, glassblowing and kiln-formed glass, mould making, laser cutting and CAD/CAM. You will also develop an understanding of materials such as concrete, plastic and wood – crafting initial ideas into finished artefacts. You’ll expand your critical approach, exploring how thinking and making can inform each other and respond to current design issues. You will have the freedom to become a dedicated specialist or explore the great range of materials, techniques and processes on offer. Students work with industry partners including British Pewter, the Goldsmiths’ Company and the Crafts Council on live briefs and national exhibitions. Students curate, exhibit and sell work at festivals including TENT at the London Design Fair, Cornwall Design Fair and the international Contemporary Craft Festival.

Modules

Our taught programme encompasses a wealth of disciplines, materials and approaches, from one-off artefacts to batch production methods, all underpinned by strong methodologies and a focus on design solutions. The range of primary material practices that we cover on our programme includes ceramics, fine metalwork and silversmithing, glass blowing and kiln-formed glass, wood, mould-making, laser cutting and CAD/CAM.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Only a small number of students study courses sitting under this broad subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at the stats. Graphic arts, education and PR are some of the typical jobs for graduates, but it's a good idea to attend open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from a specific course and what previous graduates typically go on to do.
