Did you know ceramics has been taught at famous London college Central St Martin’s for a hundred years?
In 1919 Dora Billington installed the first curriculum, developing the subject from simple china painting to, by 1955, one of the most sought-after courses in the country.It’s also now one of the two last remaining ceramic specialist degree courses, and the only one with an emphasis on design.
A new exhibition, Craftsmanship Alone is Not Enough, celebrates this rich history, showcasing work from alumni, current staff and students.
There’s an active studio in the gallery space for demonstrations and live clay firings. One not to miss.
