Our MA Metalwork course gives design professionals and graduates the opportunity to deepen their skills and experience in the areas of forgework, foundry work and metalsmithing. With access to incredible purpose-built studios, you'll have the opportunity to trial different working materials and find your niche, whether it be with a previously worked metal or something entirely new, we'll nurture and develop your skills to create bespoke projects.

This course is for highly motivated and talented individuals who wish to work at the forefront of their creative discipline, whether this is a follow-on course straight from undergraduate, a hobby alongside a career, or a career change altogether. It's a project-led and studio-based course with close tutorial guidance.

On our MA Metalwork course, rigorous research will encourage you to explore your chosen sphere through a wide range of design approaches - from traditional to contemporary influences of art, craft, design and technology.

As a student on this course, you'll benefit from teaching by leading specialist designers, artists and crafts experts. You'll create a range of objects and experiment with different materials and processes to develop your creative thinking, as well as your final piece through relevant research and a personal creative journey to best reflect your skill-set.

Throughout the course, you'll work closely alongside students from other fields such as textiles, jewellery, ceramics and glass. This will enable you to broaden your knowledge and incorporate elements from various disciplines into your practice.

Our Farnham campus offers extraordinary facilities with extensive workshops and equipment to support your study. It's also home to the Crafts Study Centre - a purpose-built museum, research centre and gallery dedicated to crafts.
