The Head of Design at Glasgow School of Art, has recommended that no new undergraduates will be accepted for both the full and part-time Ceramic degree courses, which will therefore result in the end of undergraduate ceramic education in Scotland.
This decision, taken in haste without any staff or student consultation will have major implications for Scottish design, culture and tourism.
As ceramic students of GSA, we feel passionately that there is a promising future for ceramics in Scotland and are disappointed that GSA lacks the vision and courage to support a profitable and innovative element of the design school.
We, the undersigned, do not support the closure of the last ceramics degree course in Scotland.
The Keep Ceramists in Scotland petition to supporters of ceramics worldwide was written by Catherine Bell and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
