Design processes, including advanced digital applications, will draw upon traditional and contemporary crafts throughout the world to celebrate the ever-changing relationships of Craft & Design.

Cornwall has a historic and contemporary craft heritage and this course will reflect a wide range of making within the evolving field of Design Crafts. It will provide further opportunities to develop practical and academic skills, manipulate materials, and consider formal and aesthetic solutions to personal projects.

The Level six programme will combine multi-disciplinary design craft specialisms using digital design processes and learning will be informed by contextual influences to advance individual development. You will be encouraged to participate in activities and working with real clients and organisations. The course is designed to develop the technical and design skills suitable for the student to enter the professional working environment.

On successful completion of this course, you will be able to manufacture with ceramics, textiles and metal, using a range of digital and design process applications and have a knowledge of historical and contemporary and professional practice within the creative industries.
