Our MRes Crafts course concentrates on the written histories and critical analyses of craft organisations, artists, theories and craft exhibitions, as well as discussions from management, educational and theoretical perspectives. The key outcomes of the course are a substantial essay, or an essay plus practice outcome in the case of makers.
The use of museum and private collections (including artist collections) as a focus for study will be a strong feature on our course.
Your MRes project could be the starting point for a MPhil or PhD in crafts areas.
On MRes Crafts, you'll benefit from teaching by leading specialist designers, artists and crafts people. And UCA Farnham boasts first-rate crafts facilities, with extensive workshops and equipment to support your study.
Our Farnham campus is also home to the Crafts Study Centre - a purpose-built museum, research centre and gallery for the crafts. The Centre has an international standing as a unique collection and archive of twentieth century and contemporary crafts.
This course will be studio-based for practice-based students, and library or museum-based for students engaged solely on written outcomes and study. The intensive written component of the MRes will be directed by museum professional staff of the Crafts Study Centre.
You'll undertake a combination of lectures, tutorials and visits but, primarily, our course focuses on independent, self-directed study.
UCA Farnham provides first-rate facilities with extensive workshops and equipment to support your study.
