With almost 150,000 people employed in the UK’s craft economy, skilled crafts-people are putting the country on the map for original, forward-thinking contemporary design, driving change and innovation through their knowledge of material. From the catwalk and the big screen to science labs and engineering workshops, contemporary craft makers are making a valuable contribution to a vast range of industries in the UK. Our crafts, jewellery and 3D design courses are all based in inspiring locations renowned for their creative heritage. We’re proud to offer you access to exceptional specialist craft and design workshop facilities and equipment, including glassblowing, kilns and a fully equipped Foundry, as well as a digital and traditional printmaking workshop. With experienced staff practitioners, educators, academics and technical teams on hand, we’ll give you all the support you need to achieve far beyond your expectations. Our craft makers are renowned for their innovation – UCA alumnus and esteemed jewellery designer to the stars, Stephen Webster, has designed one-of-a-kind pieces for a number of famous faces, while our very own Chancellor, Professor Magdalene Odundo OBE, is an internationally renowned ceramicist and a UCA alumna herself. Our students emerge from their experience at UCA as aspirational professionals, equipped with the potential not just to support the industry of craft, jewellery and design, but to lead it forward into the future.
