Building Arts Programme

Explore the holistic nature of our built environment with nine months of tuition and practical experience

Closing date: 4 Nov 2019

This course is aimed at students and practitioners whose discipline has the potential to inform our built environment, including those with a focus on architecture, the building crafts and the decorative or applied arts. This includes the following craft disciplines: 

  • Building Crafts; Woodwork, Stonemasonry, Blacksmithing
  • Traditional Crafts; Decorative and Applied Arts, Glasswork, Ceramics, Carving, Metal Work, Sculpture, Textiles

At the heart of this programme is the idea that our built environment is a collaboration between a vast array of different discipline areas which are all fundamentally linked and interrelated. This holistic view of the world around us, looks to demonstrates the significant role that design, building arts, decorative and traditional crafts can play in creating places and spaces of both value and meaning.

Current practice, both educationally and vocationally, is to separate and teach these principles independently – this programme will look to provide a space for rediscovering shared learning and practice, enabling students to explore the multifaceted nature of the built environment and their role within it.
