Course content

Glass spans a spectrum of creative languages. The programme challenges existing paradigms of practices across Art, Craft and Design, at the core of each is the materiality of glass and the exploration of new boundaries through the integrated relationship between process and theory. The programme exists to encourage you to position yourself within and beyond the disciplines of glass. This postgraduate programme is unique within Scotland and located at one of the few centres of excellence in this discipline in the UK. Comprehensive college wide workshops including a state of the art digital fabrication lab and specific hot and cold glass studio facilities enable the student to experience a programme in the conception and production of glass to the highest level. We benefit from visiting professional practitioners and lecturers and you will have the opportunity to §participate in live projects and competitions. Our curriculum is student-led, with tutorial guidance. You will negotiate and develop a programme of study based on personal areas of practice based research. The programme fosters inter-disciplinary collaborations with other departments creates an unique student experience and fresh, rich layers of learning embedded within innovative results.
