Course Summary

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

The spirit of Ceramics & Glass at the RCA springs from a belief in the trans-formative power of material thinking, research and making to enrich our world in imaginative and meaningful ways. We embrace the diversity of contemporary practice in this hyper-material age, and the idea that thinking and making are inseparable and inform one another.
