Program Description:

The MSc in Material Practice is an exciting new programme that takes an innovative, cross-disciplinary approach to understanding the qualities and potential of the different physical materials available to you as an artist, designer, architect or engineer. Taking in glass, textiles, architectural materials and metals, you’ll be encouraged to explore new boundaries and experiment as you develop and expand your experience in both making and using materials in our state-of-the-art studios.  You’ll have access to an exceptional range of facilities, from our state of the art hot glass workshop to our textiles print room and dye facilities, to metal workshops, casting spaces and digital technologies including rapid prototyping and CNC laser cutting.   The mix of spaces and resources, and the blending of traditional craftsmanship with cutting-edge technology, will enable you to explore new boundaries as you develop your understanding of the potential of different materials and the impact they could have on your work.
