In this challenging course, you will take part in an exciting and comprehensive programme of design and specialist craft studies. The course is project-based, and you'll be concentrating on designing, exploring and making, drawing and personal expression.

The course could provide you with a variety of work suitable for a portfolio with an emphasis on applied art techniques in Art Glass, Applied Ceramics, Jewellery, Textiles and Performance Costume.

Although we teach making skills on the course, it’s an advantage to have experience in working in 3D and also making skills in different media.
