The college was founded in 1879 by the

They set up workshops and kilns in the 1890's.  Paul Wynand took over from Ernst Barlach as instructor and professor at the college from May 1905 though to the 30th April 1910. After 1918, the prefix Königliche became Staatliche due to the abdication of Kaiser Wilhelm II. It is still operating today.
