Course summary

Learn to think about your craft in new ways, understand research as a craftsperson and become expert in your chosen practice and profession.

On this specialist MA you will develop both your creative skills and your ways of thinking, working with tutors who understand craft both as a profession and as personal expression. Module options can include extensive practical work with a wide range of materials including metal, ceramics, polymers, wood and more.

While focusing on the physical act of making, the Craft MA also covers the theory of craft, allowing practitioners to conceptualise and contextualise their practice with deeper insight. The history, theory and traditions of craft form a core component in every module, and are delivered through lectures, presentations and studio discussion groups.

You will learn from experienced professionals in a welcoming atmosphere that allows craftspeople to discuss and develop their ideas as a community.

Our MA strives to help you towards exemplary creative output. Through exploration of the traditional discipline categories, to the evolution of future interpretations and directions, you will be encouraged to fully engage with what the craft scene is today.
