In this practical unit of study you build on the experience you gained in first year. You are encouraged to choose materials and processes that best suit the ideas you are exploring. You will gain conceptual direction through a number of thematic projects, or you may choose to work on self-initiated projects. Kinetics, site-specific art, process art, installation, activism and materiality are just some of the ideas explored. Individual tuition, group seminars and technical workshops will give you confidence to explore your own emerging ideas and to discover a personal artistic voice. Your learning is supported by practical workshops, which may include timber and metal fabrication, mould-making and casting, glass blowing and fusing, ceramic wheel working and glazing.
