Yorkshire – Starter Studio Programme – Ceramics

outside_studios_for_webCall for Applications for early career designer makers – Ceramics by 11 July 2014. To foster new talent and

support early career artists, Yorkshire Artspace runs two Starter Studio Programmes: one for Silversmithing & Jewellery and one for Ceramics.
Designed to help makers who are at an early career stage and committed to further develop their skills and business models in a supportive environment, the programmes offer access to shared workspace, equipment, technical and mentor support, business advice as well as exhibition opportunities.

In August 2010, Yorkshire Artspace expanded its workspace provision with 4 brand new artists’ studios in the Manor neighbourhood of Sheffield. The studios are located approx. 2 kilometres from Sheffield City Centre on the site of a former deer park with Tudor remains. We have been working closely with our partner organisation Green Estate to develop these purpose built eco-designed units. With additional grants from Arts Council England and Foyle Foundation we have set up a shared starter studio to help early career ceramists kick start their creative careers.

To date we have supported 7 makers. We are now in year 4 of our programme and are looking to support a further two start-ups from October 2014. Selected makers will have 24/7 access to an equipped space, mentoring from more established practitioners as well as ongoing business support. You will be part of a small and thriving community of crafts practitioners and also enjoy free access to our Starting Out course delivered through our Studio54 on-line professional development website and webinar programme. You will also have opportunities to exhibit your work at our Open Studio events.

In addition to the Starter Studio programme we also run a residency programme for more established practitioners who have specialised in ceramics. Edinburgh based ceramicist Frances Priest was our first artist in residence, USA born artist Edith Garcia was selected for the 2012 programme. In September 2013 Emilie Taylor started her residency project, funded by Chatsworth, Green Estate and Yorkshire Artspace that will culminate in an exhibition at Chatsworth in Autumn of this year.

If you like to apply for this programme, please download the application form from the Yorkshire Artspace website www.artspace.org.uk.

Costs: £120 per month (includes heating and power) plus 1 month rent in advance, repayable on leaving the programme. Deadline for applications is Friday 11th July. Interviews will take place in 3rd week of July and start date is early October 2014.

If anyone would like to visit the site and starter studio, they should get in touch with Mir Jansen, Programme Manager at Yorkshire Artspace on 0114 2130111 ( mir@artspace.org.uk.)
