The master’s programme in Crafts at HDK invites students to explore the purpose of crafts in society today. Artistic exploration through materials and concepts is the basis of the programme. Coursework encourages the development of skill-based knowledge, fosters debate about the meaning of material inquiries and investigates the conceptual identity of the crafts.
Master’s specialities in Ceramic Art, Jewellery Art and Textile Art work in close cooperation with the bachelor’s and postgraduate (PhD) in Crafts and are part of the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts at the University of Gothenburg. 

The main focus of your education will be your chosen specialisation of artistic practice. As a student, you will have the opportunity to broaden your frame of references, develop exploratory artistic working methods and deepen your technical and theoretical knowledge. Projects will be developed in HDK’s well-equipped workshops with the support of qualified technicians.

HDK’s study groups are small and you will work in close cooperation with fellow students and staff. Tutoring, courses, lectures and seminars support your education and emphasise reflection and contextualisation of your practice. HDK students have individually allocated workplaces and access to the school twenty-four hours a day.
