Convergence in Industrial and Craft Processes in UK Undergraduate Product Design Courses.
This paper will discuss the convergence of craft practices and industrial processes in undergraduate Product Design programmes in the UK, and explore how the economy and new technologies have changed the priorities in the curriculum. Tom Inns, Director of the Glasgow School of Art, recently asked why we teach product design in British universities when “product design doesn’t exist in the UK economy anymore” (Inns 2014)1. If it is the case, what should we be teaching?
