About this course

How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to develop skills and techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft. Students will also be expected to research and respond to the design aspects of craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.

Students will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/notebook to record goals/ideas, progress and processes.
At the start of the course you will work with your tutor to develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to set out what you want to achieve by the end of the course. You will both monitor and assess your progress throughout the course to ensure your learning needs are being met. There are no formal exams or tests to complete on this course.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will need a pen and notebook. An apron or overalls are optional. Open toe shoes must not be worn and hair must be tied back for safety. For the first session new students should bring an A3 size sheet of clear glass, 3mm thick plus drawing materials. Returning or experienced students should bring design ideas and drawing materials. Please do not buy tools without first consulting the tutor. The cost of tools will be approximately £10-£25. There will be a small cost of consumables, lead, glass etc throughout the course.
