Are you an ambitious ceramicist in need of a supportive programme offering workspace, equipment, technical & mentor support, business advice plus commission and exhibition opportunities? Our Starter Studio Programme for early career ceramicists could be for you.
Designed to provide start-up support for designer makers at an early career stage, the two-year programme is delivered from a large, purpose built and eco-designed studio at Manor Oaks, Sheffield.

Key Features of the 2 year programme include:

•    24/7 access to shared fully equipped studio space @ £120 per month

•    Business advice and support
•    Bursary to undertake online training via The Design Trust
•    Exhibition and commission opportunities
•    20% discount on regular studio rental for 2 years from completion of the programme (subject to studio availability)

Makers on the programme will have access to the ‘All Fired Up’ Commission, a partnership with Museums Sheffield and South Yorkshire Housing Association with materials kindly donated by PotClays Ltd. This awards up to two second year participants on the programme the opportunity to make new work both for a community and a gallery setting.

The eco-designed studios at Manor Oaks are home to a small, thriving community of craft practitioners, approximately two miles from Sheffield City Centre and located on the site of a historic 16th Century deer park.

The deadline for applications is 9am, Monday 10th April, with the programme set to commence first week in October 2017.
