Contemporary Craft BA (Hons) York College



Course info


This studio-based course provides the opportunity to learn through experience whilst simultaneously requiring learners to engage with social and historical issues that inform current practice. The ability to solve problems and an understanding of form, function and design principles are developed through direct involvement with materials and processes. Students are encouraged to consider relationships between the content of work and the practical concerns of making.

The taught programme is broad in its scope and offers the opportunity to work in art, craft or design based areas, or a combination of these, and encourages an enquiring flexible approach. Work in a range of 3D materials is encouraged in the conviction that a breadth of experience is intrinsically valuable in developing students' aptitudes for making comparisons between different forms and functions, and for informing and enriching the work in 3D contemporary crafts.

Emphasis is placed on individual development and increasing self-reliance. The course is intended to enable students to make informed choices based on sound information and critical judgement. Students are encouraged to express their ideas and to develop analytical ability through lectures, seminar discussions and gallery visits. Students gain understanding of their work in the context of past practice, professional contemporary work, and the current climate of debate.

Through a sequence of modules students are prepared for professional practice and are offered the opportunity to engage in work placements and live projects run in association with regional and national organisations including businesses, galleries and schools. Students will also develop an understanding of the critical and cultural world in which their work exists, and the business and ethical concerns of the contemporary craftsperson in relation to new developments in craft practices made possible through digital technologies. Successful completion may lead to a career in the creative industries such as a craftsperson, community art worker, designer, crafts education, curatorship or administration. Some students choose to go into postgraduate study.
