Our Product Design and Craft course runs alongside Product Design and both courses have been developed to look at the reasoning for objects that surround us, from the cherished personal items to the functional. Through a programme of study that explores our understanding of the material world, you will learn how to be a designer and maker of objects that enhance our daily interactions.
You will develop essential skills in creative thinking and design strategy, and then apply these to challenge how you design for product and for craft. You will discover how to design and produce objects that embrace both traditional handmade approaches and contemporary machine and digital manufacturing.
Your design work will also look to address a diverse range of areas including social issues, global awareness and local demand by considering the objects you design and the materials and processes you use.
This course will enable you to explore strategies, materials and processes so you can develop creative and professional skills to support a career in product design and craft making.
