Our MA Ceramics course is a project led and studio based programme with tutorial guidance, where you'll produce high-quality work through rigorous academic research and creative studio practice.
You'll have the opportunity to create a range of objects, experiment with different materials and processes, and develop your individual style and creativity. Our course supports a wide range of ceramic techniques, including historical, traditional and contemporary practices, encouraging innovation in ceramics design and technology.
We'll guide you in maximising your talent and creative ability, further developing your skills for future engagement with the arts, crafts and design industries. Our courses are designed for talented, self-motivated individuals wishing to work at the forefront of artistic, creative industries and enterprises.
This course benefits from a cohort of expert staff that includes the nationally and internationally acclaimed ceramicist Professor Magdalene Odundo OBE, Professor Simon Olding (Director of our Crafts Study Centre) and Nicholas Lees, as well as a number of visiting artists such as Steve Brown and Clare Twomey.
Throughout the course, you'll have the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience by working with your peers from other specialist courses at UCA Farnham, such as our Textiles, Jewellery, Metalwork and Glass courses.
Our Farnham campus boasts first-rate facilities with extensive workshops and equipment to support your study. It's also home to our Crafts Study Centre - a purpose built museum, research centre and gallery dedicated to crafts. The Crafts Study Centre possesses the world's most coherent collection of Leach pottery and a stunning collection of work by Lucie Rie, as well as contemporary makers such as Edmund de Waal.
