About Material Art and Design at OCAD University

In the Material Art & Design program, you will learn how to create jewellery, textiles and ceramics as a professional studio artist or designer. You'll focus on making your own designs and will learn the critical and business skills you'll need to succeed.

In this program, you can choose to focus on textiles or jewellery/metalsmithing. You can also take electives in ceramics, wearable form, and wearable technology. Program instructors are top textile, jewellery and ceramics artists and designers.

Our studios are equipped with the traditional tools and new technology needed to prepare you for work as an artist, designer or craftsperson.

If you focus on textiles, you'll create your own printed, woven and experimental textiles for sculpture, clothing and surface design. You'll use traditional methods and new technology such as digital printing, embroidery and knitting.

If you focus on jewellery and metalsmithing, you'll create your own fine jewellery and sculptures with metals and other materials. You will also learn to use traditional methods of fabrication and casting alongside computer-aided design and manufacturing.

At the end of this four-year program, you will earn your choice of a Bachelor of Design or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
