Course content

Introduction

MA Designer Maker at Camberwell College of Arts is aimed at practitioners with well-developed workshop skills who are seeking to develop a critical and reflective approach to their practice. Making and learning are intertwined, and through a contextual programme our students explore the position of the designer and maker within contemporary culture and society.

Content

What students can expect from the course:

- To develop a project from proposal to final exhibition

- To develop an innovative studio practice through exploring new and existing materials and processes

- Seminars and discussions that cover a wide range of subjects, including material culture studies, anthropology, philosophy, sustainability, consumerism, museum studies, psychology and literature

- Visits to collections, makers’ studios, galleries and museums

- To critically engage with contemporary debates in applied arts, design and object-based art through the development of a personal project, as well as collectively exploring human-object relationships and the meaning of making

- A shared lecture programme across the Visual Arts courses that draw upon the richness of research across Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges

- To produce a wide range of works during the programme and for the final show, which has previously included lighting, design, ceramic works, furniture, jewellery, as well as installations of small-scale sculptures

Structure

Unit One – Research, Development and Practice

Students explore, experiment and research to further develop their Project Proposal. The unit introduces you to pathway specific issues and topics, research methodologies and techniques. It aims to orientate you and your practice within the course, and to develop your contextual, critical and research skills at the onset of your MA learning.

Unit Two – Reflection and Presentation

Resolution and presentation of students' work according to their Project Proposal. A symposium will provide the opportunity to present their research and provide further peer feedback. Students' practice at this stage should synthesise their practical, conceptual and professional abilities and they will be expected to consider their future practice, audience and context of their work in contemporary practice.

The intention and context of students' work will inform their decisions they will take regarding a final exhibition. Students' will also be expected to work collaboratively with their peers to actively plan, organise and install an exhibition as part of their continued Personal and Professional Development.
