Description

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 MA supports a wide range of ceramics practices, including historical, traditional and contemporary, and will encourage innovation in ceramics design and technology.

We'll guide you in maximising your talent and creative ability, so you'll be able to further develop 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.

Course stages
  • Theory and Analysis

    This focuses on challenging and reflecting upon your practice. You'll achieve this through the development of critical reading, observation, handling and thinking deeply about products, craft artifacts and contextual research associated with your work and its field of enquiry.

  • Exploratory Practice

    Focuses on developing your practice into a form of enquiry; a questioning, analytical and interrogative approach to your work that will enable you to become a reflective practitioner.

During stage two you begin developing your MA project, evaluating and testing out the aims of your proposal over a sustained period of self-directed study.

Course stages
  • Reflective Practice

    This is one of the most important concepts for a creative practitioner. Reflective practice enables you to become critically aware and allows you to develop and progress your practice independently. The work undertaken in this unit should begin to address the research questions you explored in the Exploratory Practice unit. Work completed for this unit should be considerably more resolved and establish a clear line of enquiry through selected materials, concepts and a clearly articulated context. You'll also have the opportunity to complete a period of professional practice during this unit.

In the third stage of the course, you'll apply the knowledge gained through your research to create a final body of work.
