The Art and Craft department imparts expertise in material and haptic processes, as both formal and tacit knowledge; through fine art undergraduate, postgraduate and doctorate programmes. Art and Craft takes inspiration from a vision of art as integrated into everyday public and private spheres. We recognise the social, political and environmental responsibilities of artistic practice in which; the contextual significance of materials, in production and sustainability, is as important as their intrinsic properties. The resurgence in DIY ethics and collaborative activities is supported by non-hierarchical learning outcomes; and the integration of digital technologies into the workshop reprises craft as an expanding field.

- Post-digital embodiment of tacit knowledge
