Anthony Quinn, Course Leader for BA (Hons) Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins, is leading on this collaborative project, which brings together art and design higher education institutions from across Europe, including the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, NOVA University of Lisbon, Weissensee Academy of Art Berlin and Oslo National Academy of the Arts. 

During this three-year partnership, the institutions involved will map out the current state of ceramics training to gather the existing fragmented knowledge in the sector. The end result will be a teaching training programme in arts education, focused on developing new ways to transfer traditional skills and creating a solid repository of ceramic practices to safeguard the future of pottery-making.
