Maria Psiliagkou

Workshop Co-ordinator – Ceramics

Maria studied ceramics at the Ceramics School of Nikaia, Athens and the University of the West of England, Bristol. She holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Education from the University of Greenwich.

Maria has been producing ceramics for over 20 years. In her creative practice, Maria investigates how personal experiences and memory are tied to a place and related to specific landscapes. Her research interests are in the development of socio-political narratives in contemporary ceramics and the use of digital technology in traditional crafts.

As part of the Craft & Material Practices team, she delivers workshops in a variety of model and mould making and surface pattern processes. She has been teaching ceramics and 3D design for over 15 years. Previously, she taught at Havering College, Barking College and Trinity School, London. Maria has also delivered family workshops at the Design Museum London and has taught pottery for Southwark Adult Education.
