On our MA Glass course you'll benefit from teaching by leading specialist designers, artists and crafts experts, which in turn will nurture and develop your own critical and practical theory and encourage students to create bespoke glass pieces inspired by their own personal journey. Throughout the course, you'll also get to work closely alongside other fields such as textiles, jewellery, metalwork and ceramics. This enables you to broaden your knowledge and incorporate elements from other disciplines into your work; a truly bespoke creative experience.
