Clay Shed’s Work Exchange Programme

Deadline: June 10, 2022

The Clay Shed’s Work Exchange Programme is open for applications. Based in Bristol, this programme provides free part-time Studio Membership, offering training in the day-to-day running of a studio in exchange for technical support.

The programme includes:

  • Up to 15 hours of studio time per week
  • A personal storage space of 1.7 square metres approx. to store tools and materials
  • Access to communal shelving to store work in progress
  • Group working spaces and specialist equipment, booked via our app
  • Technical mentoring
  • 25% discount on kiln firings
  • 10% discount on Clay Shed classes

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.

Applicants should have a basic knowledge of making and glazing procedures and know how to work safely in the studio. Please note, Work Exchange Members buy their own clay and materials.
