Our purpose-built specialist fabrication workshops house cutting-edge facilities for glass, metal, ceramics, woods and plastics, all supported by expert tuition and technical provision.
You’ll be able to use a variety of hand-building techniques and small batch production methods in ceramics, such as press-moulding, mould-making, wheel-throwing and slip-casting. In glass, you’ll be encouraged to experiment with techniques such as glass blowing, kiln-casting, slumping, fusing and lampworking. You will have access to fine metalwork and silversmithing processes, including lost wax casting and micro-welding. Traditional hand forming and contemporary mixed media approaches are taught. For working with wood we have all the tools and expertise you’ll need. You will also develop an understanding of materials such as concrete, plastic, jesmonite and resin.
Our Careers & Enterprise office provides support from a dedicated team who are purely focused on developing creative opportunities. And this doesn’t stop when you graduate – we want to keep in contact and help support you through the first two years of your career.
