The Applied Arts course offers artists and designers the
opportunity to develop and work as both specialist and
interdisciplinary practitioners across the fields of design, art
and architecture. It is an intensive studio-based programme in
which you will have freedom to explore your own ideas supported by
a rich programme of tutorials, technical workshops, theoretical and
critical studies and national and European study visits.
In your first year you will have the opportunity to explore the
traditional disciplines of ceramics, glass, metal, wood and plastic
and also be introduced to a range of Fine Art media and more
conceptual approaches to practice. Increasingly you will be
expected to understand and adopt personal positions in relation to
Fine Art and Applied Art enabling you to follow more specialist
routes through the programme for your final two years.
You will be encouraged to develop inquisitive, experimental and
creative approaches to your practice, and to extend design
expression through drawing and digital visualisations. You will be
introduced to new technologies and applications and carry out
extensive self-directed research and studio practice.
You will learn from renowned practising designers, artists and
researchers involved in a range of professional practice,
exhibition and publication. Your involvement in live projects,
national and international exhibitions and events will promote
exposure of your work to an international audience. Additionally,
you will benefit from links with companies including: Wedgwood,
Ibstock Brick, Thorn Lighting and DuPont International, together
with local and regional manufacturers and designers.
We aim to prepare you to establish yourself as
an artist, designer or maker, with the skills to enable you to
engage in freelance design or design for industry producing
anything from small scale jewellery to large scale architectural
installations and interior projects. Graduates have also gone on to
postgraduate study, and work in arts administration, curation,
teaching and mentoring, community work and arts editorial.
