The applied arts is a broad area to explore for those who see themselves as studio-based makers. Our programme is thus designed to enable you to find your individual identity as a designer and maker of objects. You will further your skills in 3D design areas, including studio ceramics, jewellery, textiles and enamelling, taking advantage of the established reputation of these specialisms at Bristol School of Art. The course is interdisciplinary in nature. You will explore a wide range of media and processes, including clay, glass, textiles, paper, metals, plastics, wood and digital applications, to arrive at your own direction, whilst actively taking part in creative conversations and debates in the studio, and through lectures and seminars. A lively and experimental approach is encoraged, focusing on the exploration of the potential for connections between different specialist areas and materials.
What do I need to join?
112 UCAS tariff points, and GCSE Maths and English C/4. You will be required to attend an interview, where you will present a digital or paper-based portfolio. Mature students over 21 will be required to demonstrate professional/creative experience and evidence of academic ability.
What are my career options?
