Art & Design
A £10.5 million investment has enabled us to develop the Creative Enterprise campus at Ware which is home to our stunning Creative Arts and Industries facilities.
State-of-the-art resources include a 3D printer, laser cutter, photography studio and dark room, Mac suites and a model-making workshop. We are also proud to have the David Gentleman Gallery in which we host regular exhibits displaying the work of our students.
Departments housed at the Ware campus include Photography, 3D Design (product, furniture and interior), Animation and Multimedia, Fashion, Graphic Design and Visual Merchandising.
HRC’s Art and Design courses include approved University of the Arts London (UAL) Awarding Body qualifications. The UAL Awarding Body is part of the University of Arts London, Europe’s largest specialist arts university.
HRC has also been recognised by the British Display Society as a Centre of Excellence for our Level 3 and 4 Visual Merchandising programmes.
Art and Design courses open up the world of Fashion, Graphic Design, Photography and more – all of which are fast-paced industries, constantly searching for new talent to set trends and create modern innovations. As an Art and Design student you will be prepared for work after study by learning hands-on techniques and be commissioned to deliver projects and live briefs. As well as building your creative abilities, these experiences will also help you develop vital business skills which will get you even closer to your successful career destination.
You may also have the opportunity to complete valuable work experience placements. Previous opportunities have included dressing and designing window displays for brands such as Harrods, John Lewis and Selfridges. You will also be given the chance to contribute to the 'Made at HRC' pop-up shop. A continually successful enterprise, the shop will give you the opportunity to sell your artwork to the public at community events.
