Diploma of Ceramic Arts

The ASP provides the Studio component for Otago Polytechnic's Diploma of Ceramic Arts Auckland based students.  It has been an interesting addition to ASP life giving passionate potters an opportunity to immerse themselves in clay (so to speak) to an even greater level and to add an academic qualification.   Every year 12 students enroll for the programme.

The programme was first taught at ASP in March 2003 and John Parker was the first tutor.  There were six students.

Many of ASP's long standing members have been able to teach modules of the programme - to name some: John Parker, Peter Collis, Duncan Shearer, Peter Lange, Bronwynne Cornish, Graham Ambrose, Ande Barratt Hegan, Penny Ericson, Campbell Hegan, Toby Twiss, Christine Thacker,  Merilyn Wiseman, Andrew Van der Putten, Brendan Adams and Peter Shearer.
