Course summary

Makers are artists, designers, craftspeople, innovators, creatives, technologists and many other things besides. They work with intelligent hands and creative minds to create the objects that shape our world. The BA Artist Designer Maker degree at Cardiff Met is a course that has making at its heart. You will gain hands-on experience with materials from metals, glass and ceramics through to wood and textiles. You will learn to bridge the gap between age-old skills and the latest technology and create new and original ways of making for our ever- changing world. You will develop your own unique style and consider where your work sits within creative practice. You will learn from professional practicing artists, designers and makers, sharing in their passion and acquiring their skills. By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to investigate and develop an idea all the way through to realisation - whether it’s a functioning product, decorative object, sculpture or installation. You’ll be a maker - and the future will be in your hands.
