Course content

Our MA Glass programme encourages the development of individual and distinctive glass practice through engagement with contemporary approaches to the material, critical and cultural context and debate.

Exploration through playful investigation of a full range of material expressions is encouraged, challenging preconceptions about the material and its status within the world of craft, art and design.

By placing materiality and conceptual development at the centre of your practice, you can explore the visual language of glass in juxtaposition to other materials and modes of thinking.

The programme seeks to affirm or redefine your position as a maker by learning through making, as well as through theoretical and practical applications.

In addition to a keen interest in material qualities and the heritage of glass practice, topics driven by narrative developments and current issues, such as the rise of digital tooling and globalisation, will be ongoing conversation points as you explore the ever-changing technological landscape. At the core of this programme are the themes of reflecting through making and reflecting on making.
