Ceramic Study (Advanced)

1. Overview

The course accommodates students who wish to build on previous skills, and further develop their personal practice.

This will vary depending on the level of experience and desired direction of ceramic study.

2. What you will study

This course offers an earlier afternoon start and encourages further development of mould making and slip casting with a greater focus on porcelain clay.

Students are encouraged to develop self-directed study throughout the course. Tuition will be tailored to individual student projects.

Students are encouraged to keep a visual diary, which reflects the development of their ceramic practice, individual interests and the work of influential artists.

The Wednesday afternoon Advanced Ceramics course runs alongside students from the Intermediate Ceramics course.

3. Entry Requirements

This course is recommended for experienced ceramics students, with existing knowledge and practice of ceramic technologies and production techniques.

Suitable for students who have completed Intermediate Ceramics and above.

All students are required to be at least 16 years of age on the commencement of course.
