Foundation Material and Making: Approaches to Sculpture

Since its launch in 2021, our Foundation Material and Making: Approaches to Sculpture course has welcomed a diverse range of students who have expanded their creative ideas. The course introduces various key creative methods and approaches to making, encouraging students to explore and respond to materials and objects in their local environment in imaginative ways.

The course offers a great opportunity to develop a wide range of transferable skills through accessible exercises and projects. Alongside sculptural methods, students also explore mark-making, drawing, mixed media, photography, installation, video, and textile processes. This makes it an ideal foundation for those considering further study opportunities at the degree level, particularly in Creative Arts, Fine Art, and Textile pathways.

Using materials that are close at hand and easily accessible, the course helps develop an investigative approach to making and builds key creative and technical skills, alongside visual and contextual awareness of recent sculptural history.

Foundation courses can be transformative for students looking for a change of direction or wanting to diversify their creative output. This course promotes invention and exploration through making, challenging expectations, and developing a personal student voice.
