BA (Hons) 3D Design & Creative Practice
Charlie Barnes, Programme Leader
Explore your creativity and refine your technical skills with this practical studio-based course. This degree will allow you to get hands-on and delve into a range of creative practices and techniques, such as textiles, wood and metal work, fine metal and jewellery, ceramics and 3D making. On this course you can choose to specialise in a particular creative practice or sit between disciplines, both of which we encourage and support. The course is broad with an emphasis on experimentation, and promotes combining of materials and processes to create innovative ideas and outcomes.
You will experience new challenges and explore new concepts. Through learning processes and working with a wide range of materials, you will develop a broad skills base. You will be encouraged to apply these to your own projects, which will give you a distinct and proficient body of work that will enable you to become a creative professional.
Your studies will be underpinned by historical, cultural and theoretical research, as well as gaining a working understanding of the implications of making in contemporary contexts. The course tutors have many industry links and the course offers opportunities to engage in work placements and live projects in collaboration with regional and national organisations including businesses, galleries and schools. The work of our students is featured in external exhibitions each year, providing graduates with a unique experience; which often leads to exciting work opportunities.
