We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Clay & Stone Crafts equip postgraduate with theoretical, historical and practical knowledge of ceramics crafts involving stone, clay and related materials.
Courses range from taught MA and MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field such as Ceramics, Art or Design.
Training covers a broad range of methods, techniques and theoretical approaches. These include approaches in sculpture and installation, to studio ceramic and design for products in the commercial industries.
You will establish your own studio-based practise through an analysis of aesthetics and design, particularly in contemporary practise. Through an analysis of cultural and critical perspectives, you will also advance your contextual knowledge of Clay & Stone Crafts. This will include gathering data in the form of archival material, artefacts and literary resources.
You could use this experience to work independently upon graduation, exhibiting your own work across different galleries. Or, you may choose to form a collective of practitioners or join a guild to develop an artistic aim, such as a community art project.
