Introduction

Innovate and challenge footwear design through new technology and craftsmanship; in the process, master fashioned footwear.

Content

This MA course will provide students with a unique creative and technical platform to develop their own unique personal interest and methodology through design and technical skills, as well as their individual conceptual and critical thinking. The course aims to explore the link between the impossible and the achievable, to challenge aesthetics, to question function and challenge the discipline in order to redefine it.

We seek to recruit students from a wide variety of design and cultural backgrounds who will be a unique force of free-thinkers who challenge boundaries, within a laboratory of experimentation and investigation. This will include both graduates and practitioners from within industry with previous knowledge and skills in the area of footwear design, and self-motivated individuals with relevant materials and technology-based skills who look to challenge themselves.

Building on a wealth of knowledge and machinery heritage, the course puts an emphasis on the footwear tradition and craft that the Cordwainers heritage embodies, but also actively explores and questions technologies and materials of the future through availability of the latest technology. In this environment students will build on their previous background knowledge and skills to create innovative footwear, extending existing norms both conceptually and technologically, through either bespoke handcrafted or mass production manufacturing. The outcome of this can be commercial, innovative, radical, conceptual and/or avant-garde; students are challenged to respond in an innovative way not to what footwear is, but instead to look to what it can be.
