Course Summary

Based in Farnham, this exciting new course focuses UCA’s extensive craft experience and expertise in ceramics and glass at the heart of England's designated Craft Town. You'll learn how to blow glass and use the hot glass workshop, or create beautiful ceramic pieces and learn the details of using kilns, wheel throwing and more. The course embraces diverse approaches to ceramics and glass, supporting you to explore all methods of the crafts including traditional and contemporary practices. You’ll have the opportunity to experience materials and processes across both disciplines in detail, whilst naturally focusing on your chosen path. With an emphasis on high-quality craftsmanship, we place great importance on traditional hand skills whilst fully acknowledging the new and exciting possibilities also offered by digital fabrication. You'll gain the knowledge and experience to build your own studio at home if you want to set up an independent brand, or the confidence to settle comfortably within an established studio, working with others. *Course subject to validation.
