What is the course about?

This course is aimed at adult students (19+) who have a keen interest in ceramics and wish to progress and explore careers within ceramics. This is a beginner’s course so is ideal for anyone just starting out and wanting to learn the basics.

Why should I choose the course?

The aim of this course is to introduce you to the skills, knowledge, and behaviours required to be successful within ceramics. The course will prepare you for the next stage of your journey, whether this is further education or employment within the creative industries.

What will I learn?

As part of the course, you will explore a variety of ceramics techniques and processes that may include using paper clay, Raku, coil building, slab building, slip casting, smoke firing, mould making, stoneware, and earthenware glazing. You will develop practical skills and explore other artists’ work in order to inspire your own work.

You will be assessed through practical work, sketchbook work, and written evaluation.

What will the course lead on to?

Following successful completion of the course you can progress onto a level 2 art and design-based course such as the Level 2 Certificate in Ceramics.

Are there any links with industry and university?

Students may benefit from guest lectures from visiting artists and craftspeople who can deliver specialist workshops and talk about working as a freelance artist. Techniques and equipment used will be closely aligned to industry working practices in order to fully prepare you for developing as a ceramics artist. You may have the opportunity to take part in trips or offsite activities to gather inspiration for your own work. You will also have the opportunity to exhibit your work to your peers throughout the course to showcase the skills you have developed.

What support is available?

We have a team of staff dedicated to providing learning support if required, as well as a Welfare Team that is on hand to offer guidance, support and help when needed. Additionally, eligible students can access a wide range of finance and funding support to help them during their time at college.
