CAST is seeking a ceramic artist as the tenant and manager of the fully equipped ceramic studio, Brickworks at CAST.
We hope that the artist will use the studio for their own professional practice and, with other ceramicists, run paid courses, classes and open access sessions, using their expertise and judgment to devise a viable and sustainable business model for the long-term operation of the studio. The studio has an established website brickworks.castcornwall.art which is set up to handle bookings and online payments.
Rosanna Martin, the ceramic consultant who was responsible for launching the studio is now leaving to begin a PhD and we are looking for an energetic and enterprising ceramic artist who is interested to work with other artists as tutors, technicians and colleagues to develop a self-supporting studio that involves other members of the community as paying students and participants.
CAST will support the artist to make contacts with local schools, organisations and community groups, and will seek funding to enable the ceramic studio to offer opportunities for community participation as part of its economy, as well as assisting with general marketing through CAST’s monthly newsletter and social media platforms.
Expressions of interest are sought ASAP, with a deadline of 9am on Monday 4 September.
