New to the blog I’ve added a list of sites where ceramics may be pursued, at one level or another, here in Aotearoa and around the world, virtually or personally. Most residential courses charge for attendance unless one applies for and receives a scholarship covering attendance. These don’t always cover all and accommodation may be extra. Fares still need to be covered by the attendee. Many of the USA centres are ex-hippie communities transformed to contemporary residential art centres and usually located in beautiful rural areas. They employ highly reputed, top level, teachers usually drawn from University courses or independent studio artists and often feed students into tertiary courses for ceramics.
There will be many more, these are what I can recall at present but should anyone know of more then please send in so anyone can access.
