Art and Design Practice (Ceramics)

Students have an opportunity for interdisciplinary study under the art or design routes, whilst confirming their research focus and final trajectory. The course provides both intellectual and practical training for students who want to follow and develop their own personal programme of research through the medium of clay and ceramics. Students are encouraged to test the boundaries of the material and their ideas through practical and theoretical enquiry. A broad base of both technical and practical facilities for ceramic processes, alongside extensive workshop that specialise in wood, metal and printed image, enable students to expand and enhance their material discipline through interdisciplinary exchange. The programme concludes with a public exhibition of work.
