We are fundraising for our CSM graduating Degree Show in June plus a group show in Central London during the London Design Festival in Sept.

by CSM Degree Show Fundraising 2019 in London, England, United Kingdom

We are 24 students graduating from BA Ceramic Design at Central St Martins this summer. Our course is both the largest ceramics course in Europe - surprising since it accepts fewer than 30 students each year. But it is also one of only two remaining single honours bachelor’s degree courses in ceramics left in the in United Kingdom. We are literally some of the few individuals left holding the torch for excellence in our discipline. Meanwhile, UAL, our university, was ranked in the top 6 universities for Art and Design worldwide in 2018. So you could say we are a bit special! 

We have learned loads over the last 3 years and now want to launch our careers and promote our work beyond the walls of Central St Martins. We are asking for your support to achieve this goal and raise £5000 to cover the costs of staging two high profile exhibitions:

• Central Saint Martin’s Degree Show, 1 Granary Square, London, 19th - 23rd June, 2019

• London Design Festival at The Crypt Gallery, Euston Road, London 18th - 22nd September, 2019.

Who are we?

The Class of 2019 BA Ceramic Design is made up of students whose work varies from skilled craft potters, cutting edge ceramic designers, to artists and sculptors. A lot of our work is publicly engaged, trying to make a difference by addressing issues from climate change to the impact of the digital world on humanity. Some of us are hell bent on creating community using clay while others strive for beauty in the perfect everyday ceramic object. We are a diverse group and we hope you will come and see the breadth of our work at the Degree Show in June or Crypt Gallery in September.

Why we need your help?

We are looking to raise £5000. Any moneys you donate will go towards the cost of printing promotional material, but most importantly our exhibition catalogue, which will be used for both shows. It will also help cover the cost of venue hire for the Crypt Gallery, and our inclusion in the London Design Festival.

If we exceed this £5000 target, any money over and above what is needed, will be donated back to the CSM Ceramics Dept to help buy new equipment to be used and enjoyed by future students.
