We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Metal Crafts offer advanced postgraduate training in the use of metals within craft work for aesthetic and practical purposes. Training includes forgework, foundry work and metalsmithing with a range of pure, mixed and precious metals.
Taught MA and practise-based MFA courses are typical for the field. Entry requirements typically include a relevant undergraduate degree such as Art or Design Technology, though sufficient work experience may also be accepted.
A broad range of career options are available to you as a Metal Crafter. If you would like to work artistically, you could become an independent practitioner or join an artists’ guild, designing and creating artwork such as sculptures, whether for exhibitions or public centres. Alternatively, you might wish to undertake other creative work in the form of metal conservation, jewellery design or even bespoke furniture.
Your expertise could also be applied to manufacturing industries, particularly in automation and the production of vehicles such as car and aeroplanes. You could also design products for the medical or veterinary fields, such as prosthetic limbs or parts for surgical machinery.
