The study of Ceramics at NAS emphasises the ‘hands-on’ experience of working with clay.

Through the production of objects utilising a broad range of studio materials and equipment, our students engage in a ‘hands on’ exploration of the traditions of this ancient craft and its contemporary possibilities.

Our Ceramics studios are among the best equipped in Australia and support production across the entire temperature spectrum of ceramics from raku to porcelain. Students have access to production in a broad range of studio processes including hand building, wheel-throwing and casting techniques under the guidance of expert staff.
