Course content

Working in your own dedicated studio area, with access to a broad range of workshop facilities, you will get the chance to experiment with a variety of cross-disciplinary materials as well as digital technologies. You will learn practical techniques and processes through hands-on technical demonstrations, gaining high levels of craftsmanship.

In your first year, you will develop your specialist knowledge across materials in ceramics, wood, metals and plastics. This will enable you to become a more informed contemporary maker and someone who can use specialist skills professionally and effectively, with an emphasis on high class skills in practical making, experimentation and craftsmanship. This course will enable you to create innovative design solutions and develop your ability to contextualise your design practice within a global arena.

In your second year, you will develop your own voice specialising in: Ceramics, Interior Products, Contemporary Jewellery and Fashion Accessories or Digital Craft where you can build independent professional working practices, take on increasing responsibilities for your own creative journey and undertake ‘live’ briefs with companies such as SCP, Sainsbury’s Home, Goldsmiths, Marks and Spencer Home, Portmeirion, Royal Doulton and Wedgwood. There is also an opportunity to gain a substantial work placement.

In your third year, you’ll consolidate your knowledge and skills to produce your final exhibition pieces. Alongside your studio work, you will gain an insight into design futures/ business set-up and branding yourself ready for the world of work.

With your final year projects, you are encouraged to generate innovative objects for the contemporary design arena. This culminates with our annual degree show exhibition (Show and Tell) for academic, public and professional audiences at the end of year. Selected students are also given the opportunity to exhibit work at New Designers in London.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching

The teaching on this course is firmly rooted in studio practice. You develop your skills across a wide range of project-based activities, which take place within a studio setting appropriate to the subject. Sometimes you will work in whole groups, sometimes you will work in teams, with presentations of your work to your peer group and the academic staff. At other times during your study, you will be working on individual self-initiated projects. During projects, there will be tutorial sessions and critiques with academic staff where you explore your practice in more detail.

In addition, you take part in lecture and seminar activities which allow you to explore the contextual and professional background to the projects you are undertaking. These are led by your lecturers and also guest tutors from industry who bring their specialist insight into the sessions. You also participate in technical demonstration sessions with technicians, enabling you to enhance your making and digital skills across a wide range of techniques and approaches.
