25.10.2017

Staff from UWTSD's Swansea College of Art will be on hand at stand 25 of Cardiff’s ‘Made by Hand’ Contemporary Craft Fair on November 3 to 5.   

The team from courses including Design Crafts, Architectural Stained Glass, Surface Pattern Design and Product Design will showcase examples of contemporary craft objects (glass, ceramics and jewellery) and provide practical demonstrations to visitors at the event at City Hall.

Senior Research Fellow Dr Shelley Doolan said: “It will be a great opportunity to introduce our new Design Crafts degree which complements existing craft and making programmes which include Architectural Stained Glass, Surface Pattern Design and Product Design.  We are delighted to be taking part in ‘Made by Hand’ to share our passion for Craft with like-minded souls.”

Swansea College of Art boasts an impressive range of specialist workshop facilities covering traditional hand-making processes to cutting-edge digital tools such as waterjet and laser cutting, 3D printing and milling.

The UK has a world-wide reputation for creative and innovative Craft and Design, with graduates from these sectors in high demand across a range of industries. Our graduates develop strong creative, problem-solving, design and making skills which can be applied to a wide range of employment opportunities, from self-employment (as independent artists, designers and makers) through to working for established companies in a variety of roles.

Entrepreneurism is embedded within our programmes, with wide-ranging discussions on the diverse approaches to developing and sustaining a creative practice as well as finding routes to employment within the immediate sector and beyond.  This is enhanced by regular lectures from visiting practicing makers and associated professionals.
