The Clay Shed’s team will support your creative practice with technical and contextual advice as well as provide opportunities to exhibit your work at their Open Studio events. In exchange, they ask for 3 hours and 30 minutes of hands-on technical support each week.
This opportunity is targeted towards early-career makers or recent graduates to allow them access ceramic specialist facilities, join a community of ceramic artists, develop their technical skills and gain first-hand experience.
