Within the set projects students are encouraged to experiment with materials, techniques and processes, exploring the potential of each. The development of good problem-solving skills is encouraged, helping the students work with greater independence and confidence.

Sketchbooks are used for much of the research, planning and preparation stages within a project. Additionally to this, students complete studio work in a wide range of scales.
