MA Contemporary Crafts — Overview
Housed in our craft and design centre, this programme will help you to develop new ways of thinking and making, deepening your knowledge of specialist processes, techniques, materials and cultures.
Whether you’re a recent graduate or are more established in your practice, our Masters in Contemporary Crafts programme gives you a focused period of self-directed learning, enabling you to develop your skills and deepen your experience in the areas of glass, ceramics, textiles, smallscale metalwork and jewellery, bookbinding, print and multimedia.
The physical act of making engages the body, hand, mind and heart. If this kind of profound creative involvement is important to you, and you have the imagination and motivation to take your practice in new directions, then our programme will engage and challenge you – our studios and workshops will become your laboratory for research and experimentation.
Craft also has an important role to play in our transition as a society to a sustainable future. We encourage our students to question mass production and consumerism and find alternatives to them, generating new practices that reshape our assumptions about form and function.
Through expert tuition and access to our outstanding facilities, this programme will support you with structured research, intellectually stretching theory and innovative practice. We welcome highly motivated applicants from backgrounds across contemporary and traditional design and craft practices, including glass, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, jewellery, bookbinding, print and multimedia.
