Study Abroad

The International Ceramics Studio is open to all possibilities for universities, art schools and independent organisations to bring groups of students, teachers and practising artists to work in our centre.

We are pleased to organise for you and facilitate educational programs for many student groups, including travel, workshop visits, invited lecturers and demonstrators and interesting field trips. Many universities bring groups of students and tutors to complete a student project, using the facilities we offer.

Students find it an invaluable experience to work in an atmosphere of total involvement, not only furthering their knowledge and experience in ceramic arts but also building long lasting personal impressions and friendships.

Discounts are available on the costs for student groups. Please discuss this and other any ideas and possibilities with our international co-ordinator.

We can provide packages to suit almost any requirements and to help you plan your trip we can organise . . .

Arriving at the airport.
You can be met at the airport by our staff and transported by bus to the studio.

Demonstrations and workshops by leading artists and teachers.
As well as the world leading artists working in the studio throughout the year we can call on specialists to teach specific techniques or processes.

Visits to traditional ceramic sites.
Hungary has many village potteries still practising traditional pottery making. You can see black fired pottery, slip trailed earthenware, fine painted porcelains and low temperature wood firings. We can organise demonstrations by traditional master potters.

Field trips to museums, porcelain manufacturers and artist studios.
The ICS has excellent relations with museums and factories giving unique access to museum deposits and collections

Trips to historic or touristic places.
Hungary is a very beautiful and historic country. Take the opportunity to know the culture of central Europe better.

Help with budgeting for your trip.
We will assist in every way possible to accurately budget for your living expenses etc.

The studio has an impressive range of facilities, including specialist equipment not usually available to students in normal educational establishments, providing them with increased opportunities and experiences. Students have exceptional 24 hour access to workshops and equipment, breaking down the barriers between education, life and art.

Alongside the teachers and professors, leading Hungarian artists and world-famous artists invited by the Studio also teach while making their own work. Students are able to learn in a supportive and mutually creative way, experiencing philosophy, processes of thought and technical expertise of the masters.

One condition for all invited professional artists to the Studio is that they leave some of their pieces made in the studio for the collection of the ICS. This is how we have created a unique collection of international contemporary ceramic art to which students have access to handle, study and research the actual works, often only seen in books or magazines. An invaluable resource, inspiring students to strive for perfection. The collection now houses in excess of 3000 pieces of artwork from over 400 artists from 43 countries.
