We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Fabric & Leather Crafts equip postgraduates with the skills to create and develop crafts based upon source materials such as leather, cotton, silk and so on. Can also include scientific development of materials through engineering and technology.
Courses range from taught MA and MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree.
Courses in this field are extremely diverse, and offer graduates a range of vocational and applied opportunities. Far from simply being ‘artsy’ in nature, these Masters examine the creation and production of both natural and synthetic materials in numerous ways.
For example, advancing scientific and technological approaches are being employed in the production of leather to make it a sustainable renewable resource. On the other hand, creative industries are exploring materials in aesthetic ventures for exhibitions, community events and even therapy.
A Masters in this field could lead to truly diverse career prospects. You might choose to specialise in your craft to become an independent creative practitioner. On the other hand, you could venture into commercial industries, from fashion to furniture or even pet supplies.
