The course also ‘knits in’ well for students who have experience in other art and design disciplines such as Ceramics, Jewellery, Glass and Life Drawing in particular. It offers students the ability to adopt and apply an inter disciplinary approach to develop visual thinking and experience with processes. It can be used to make new work and refresh working practice.
