Studies

The specialized subjects are taught throughout the three years of the BA programme: accessory projects, which deal with projects related to bags, footwear, gloves, headwear; and in addition bookbinding, which covers both traditional and contemporary bookbinding and design. The specialized studies are supported by traditional technologies along with contemporary methods and lectures.
In addition to the great variety of specialized skills, the students acquire specific knowledge in the fields of activity that support the creativity of the designer/artist, and the skills for working independently, in a team or in collaboration with a client (compiling a portfolio, sustainable design, business fundamentals, etc.).
At the MA level, the students delve deeper into the chosen topic with the support of specialized courses and faculty-centered projects.
Project-based studies at both higher education levels enable changes of topic to be made in the curriculum as needed and provide the students with greater freedom to decide on the content of their education.
