Unique nationally, this course provides a design-led creative experience of ceramics within a broad subject context and brings an ethos of responsible design to the study of markets and manufacture.
This course is part of the Product, Ceramic and Industrial Design Programme.
Great reasons to apply:
Designing through making allows you to access ideas through a unique material. The deep knowledge of one material helps you to appreciate the opportunities in ceramics but also its translation into other materials
Ceramics as a subject spans a number of differing professional practices. We visit studios, factories and retail opportunities on study visits in the UK and Europe
The course has consistently very high responses in the National Student Survey for its supportive learning community and its relevance as a creative career
There are many product designers, fashion designers, graphic designers and fine artists in the job market. There are very few Ceramic Designers; this means on graduation you have a different creative story, think differently and other skills which will make you stand out in a crowd
Ceramics has a visual language in all cultures and is intrinsic to people’s lives, needs and memories. Design projects with the profession whilst on the course help appreciate the currency of culture and its extraordinary value.
