This major is only available to students undertaking the Bachelor of Visual Arts.
Study in the internationally renowned Ceramics Workshop offers a wide range of experiences from the sculptural to the functional, from the technical (through the unique Glaze/ Clay/ Kilns course) to the expressive. Students engage with the wider community and environment in a variety of ways (undertaking field studies and attending Workshop camps, meeting with a rich community of visiting ceramicists, and visiting gallery exhibitions to hear floor talks from the artists themselves). Students study ‘processes’, introducing the potential of various clay forming and decorating methods, ‘surfacing’, exploring the possibilities for surface enrichment, and ‘the space between’, explorations in scale, installation/ fieldwork, time based or web based experiments.
Students who complete this major will have the skills and knowledge to:
- Demonstrate skills and knowledge of the practices, languages, forms, materials, technologies and techniques in ceramic art making.
- Apply relevant skills and knowledge to realise artefacts and forms of creative expression.
- Develop and evaluate concepts and process by thinking creatively, critically and reflectively.
- Work independently and collaboratively in a workshop environment in response to project demands.
- Apply occupational health and safety regulations and principles within a workshop environment.
