The workshops are the vibrant heart of our hands-on student learning experience, where practical experimentation is a key part of your incremental development process.

You’ll be equipped with all the critical and technical skills necessary to express your personal viewpoint with confidence and to understand your own creative craft and design work within the broader subject context.
