Students participating in the Diploma of Ceramics present an exciting Showcase of their work from their first year.
This is a two-year full-time course, and was offered for the first time on Waiheke through the Waiheke Community Art Gallery in partnership with Otago Polytechnic.
Experienced Waiheke ceramicist Penny Ericson and renowned potter and wheel tutor Peter Collis are practical tutors with additional online course material supplied by Otago Polytechnic.
The prestigious diploma course is another reason for Waiheke Island becoming known as “Auckland’s island of art”.
The diploma entails three fulltime days a week in block courses over 30 weeks.
