Study type Taught


This specialist pathway offers students opportunity to engage with the expanded field of theory and
practice of Sculpture, specifically with emphasis on place and context. Through a combination of
studio practice, access to specialist workshop facilities, critical discourse, as well as potential links
with Sculpture and Environmental Art’s external partners, it offers a challenging and motivating
environment through which to experiment, reflect and develop new individual directions. The
Sculpture pathway will culminate in a self-directed enquiry, which, through practice, will test and
investigate theoretical approaches to making, collaboration and social engagement. The Sculpture
pathway provides unrivaled studio and workshop facilities in the centre of the city, with access to
high end workshops and exhibition spaces, offering ambitious working opportunities in terms of
scale, space and install. As well as creative opportunities, the programme provides further
professionalising experiences through its Industry standard certification for use of workshops and
equipment. As such, it offers opportunity for students to hone and develop professional skills in
relation to the specific challenges presented by each particular context, offering a unique catalyst
for learning, dialogue, development and production.
