In the last 10-15 years craft and making activities have been attracting more attention in the design industry and beyond. Engaging fully with the broadening and diversifying debates around making, the course reflects the notable shift in the discipline’s focus towards ethical and environmental issues. These may manifest in the development of new materials, or reconfiguration of existing systems and resources, while others address diversity, ecology, inclusivity and empowerment of individuals.
Students on the course typically come from craft, product, furniture design and architecture backgrounds.
MA Designer Maker at Camberwell College of Arts is aimed at design and applied art 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, students explore the position of the designer and maker within contemporary culture and society.
