Announcing the launch of the 2015 Seasalt Bursary

leachblog300615

In 2014 the Leach Pottery and Cornish clothing company Seasalt announced the launch of the Seasalt BursaryFollowing on from the success of last year’s recruitment campaign, the Leach Pottery and Seasalt are now offering another individual the enviable opportunity to train and study at the famous St. Ives studio as part of the Seasalt Bursary. Seasalt, a family run company with long standing links to the creative community in St Ives, are delighted to continue backing this innovative scheme.

In 2014, following a search that saw applications from as far afield as Spain and the USA, the Leach Pottery appointed their first Seasalt apprentice Callum Trudgeon.

“We’ve had a fabulous year with Callum” says Leach Pottery Director Julia Twomlow, “He has been a great addition to the team and we very much look forward to working with Seasalt again to find our next apprentice. This is a great opportunity for someone to start out on a new career path doing something really creative but also practical and rewarding.”

Applications for the scheme are now invited. No previous ceramics experience is necessary, but we are looking for someone with enthusiasm and natural creative flair who is available for an initial 12 months. Preference will be given to applicants from within the county of Cornwall. For the right candidate, it is hoped that the one year apprenticeship could lead to a permanent position at the Leach Pottery.
The Seasalt Bursary is providing funding towards the establishment of this position on an annual basis.
