    Course description and aims

    This qualification reflects the role of ceramicists who combine specialised technical, creative and conceptual skills to develop their own ceramics practice. They are able to plan, design and reaslise a body of ceramic work using in-depth skills specifici to ceramics technologies, materials and processes.

    Practice at this level is underpinned by application of arts theory and history and the ability to critically analyse and synthesise information from a range of sources. Discourse around complex ideas is also required.

    Ceramicists may work in their own practice, or in organisations that design and produce ceramic objects, such as specialist tile manufacturers or makers of landscape and gardening items. The purpose of the work may be artisitic or functional. Ceramic artists often teach in a range of community contexts.

    Students will design and create ceramic works using handbuilding, mouldmaking and wheel working techniques. They will learn the theory and practice of glaze making and kiln packing/firing. They will participate in professional art practice activities and present their ceramic works in our end of year exhibition.
