About this program
Awarded by: Open University Validation Services
From groundbreaking architecture to fine art – humanity’s relationship with ceramics and glass transcends aesthetics to function as a three-dimensional comment on culture and
society. BA (Hons) Ceramics & Glass explores the functional and sculptural elements of these rich materials, enabling you to take them in unique directions.
This programme provides an opportunity to learn to use these enduring materials and prepare for a creative career. Our experienced tutors and programme of visiting lecturers/
artists, which have included notable practitioners such as Antoine Leperlier, Geoffrey Mann, Sandy Brown, and Paul Scott, will introduce you to an array of applications and approaches in ceramics, glass and mixed media. Our cross-disciplinary approach promotes working alongside specialists in 3D design craft, jewellery and new technologies, interrogating mediums with a critical conscience. You’ll have open access across all our spacious studios
and workshops and have opportunities to specialise in ceramics or glass, or develop skills in both materials. In ceramics, you’ll be introduced to a variety of hand-building techniques and small batch production methods, such as mould-making, wheel-throwing and slip-casting. In glass, you’ll explore a comprehensive range of techniques including glassblowing, kiln-formed glass, coldworking and lampworking. You’ll have access to our FabLab, which has been used for everything from Pâte de Verre glass printing to 3D printing of soundwaves to create unique jewellery.
