Programme Director: Eva Lapka Coordinator and Head Technician: Olaf de Winter
The VAC started as a clay guild over 65 years ago, and our ceramics tradition continues to thrive. The department offers a unique learning experience in our large studio equipped with fourteen wheels, five electric kilns, a laboratory for preparation of glazes and ceramics technicians. Open studio time allows students to hone skills. Workshops, demonstrations, and lectures by visiting ceramic artists enhance the curriculum. Teaching focuses on technical expertise – mastering the wheel, use of glazes, etc. – but also encourages students to explore the expanding boundaries of contemporary ceramic art.
The additional fee for materials covers: up to one box of clay, glazes and engobes, as well as firings and the use of open studios for extra practice.
We would like to thank the EJLB Foundation for their continuing generous support of our ceramics department.
