About Glass, Ceramics, Metalwork, Jewellery, BA (Hons) - at University for the Creative Arts (UCA)

Our Glass, Ceramics, Jewellery, Metalwork course gives you the opportunity to explore all material areas before choosing to either study one area in greater depth, or continue to work across specialisms.

With no prior specialist knowledge or experience required, this course fully equips you to initiate and develop creative ideas, while offering you the freedom to work with a range of materials.

Alongside learning a variety of both modern and traditional craft skills, you will also learn valuable business skills, including self-promotion and understanding the process of self-employment, as well as many opportunities to network in the industry.

The diversity and standard of our studio facilities across the four specialisms is exemplary within the Higher Education sector.

The use of the latest digital manufacturing technologies, alongside traditional making skills, will challenge the notion of the ‘handmade’ and bring you up-to-date with the latest trends in craft and design.

The UK’s craft and design specialisms have a long-standing and world-renowned reputation, putting the country on the map for innovative, forward-thinking, contemporary design.

This course is all about finding innovative design solutions – our working methodology is collaborative, curious, playful and experimental and a vehicle for expression.

Our students’ work spans a very broad spectrum – from design for manufacture to the unique art object – so throughout your studies, you’ll learn and develop your skills through a combination of workshops, lectures, seminars, tutorials, but most importantly through your own practice.

You’ll use your skills as a means of experimenting with materials and processes, whilst playful invention will form the basis of working through specialist workshops, creating engagement on multiple levels.

You’ll also build the ability to work as part of a creative team through the conception, management and execution of a public graduate exhibition.

Our students also take part in competitions with the British Art Medals Society, the Lighting Association, and the Stevens Association, familiarising themselves with workplace projects, commissions and exhibitions during their studies here at UCA.
