The Design and Crafts MA programme prepares students for professional practice and helps them identify their own positions as artists/designers. The students enter a common programme but also select a specialisation: ceramics, glass art, jewellery and blacksmithing, textile design, leather art and design or fashion design. Students who commence studies in the Design and Crafts programme remain closely connected with their chosen discipline. Regardless of the specialisation, the MA programme focuses on collaboration. This includes group tasks that cross disciplines, where students with different backgrounds and study experience work together. A significant part of the coursework takes the form of workshops (supervised partly by international lecturers), which aim to break routine and provide inspiration. The head of programme is prof Tanel Veenre, and tuition is 1500€ per year.
Material-based design and craft disciplines have a unique outlook and philosophy, and the Estonian Academy of Arts is one the few places in the world where it is possible to study in some of these fields at the MA level. Each MA graduate should be the best in the world in something — whether this be in producing an ingenious product, having a unique artistic position or demonstrating in-depth, materials-based research. The Design and Craft s MA programme is also an ideal entry point for international students wishing to continue their studies in the EAA doctoral programme.
We welcome applications for the Autumn 2016 semester until May 1, 2016.
