Our MDes Applied Arts course will take your material and design skills to the highest level and set you apart in the job market. You will have the opportunity to develop high quality craft skills as a professional maker in glass, ceramics, metalwork, woodwork, jewellery or have the chance to combine materials. Your creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial skills will be embraced and developed throughout the course and you will develop your ability to express your ideas and lead on your choice of materials and techniques. There are opportunities for you to enter competitions and to exhibit your own work, as well as to take on ‘live’ briefs and industrial experience. There are also visits to festivals, exhibitions and collections during the course – giving you the chance to analyse the work of others and explore new ideas.
