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

The programme will demonstrate how to investigate and develop skills that combine multi-disciplinary design craft specialisms using digital design processes. Your learning will be informed by contextual understanding to stimulate individual development and awareness of two and three-dimensional language, procedural thinking and making. Academic and professional practice skills will prepare you for specialist fields and study.

On successful completion of this course, students 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.
