Yorkshire Artspace - NEW for 2010: Starter Studio Programme for Ceramicists Manor Oaks Studios
Early Summer 2010, Yorkshire Artspace will expand its workspace provision with 4 brand new studio units in the Manor area of Sheffield, close to the City Centre and situated on the site of a former deer park. We have been working closely with our partner organisation Green Estate to develop these purpose built, eco-designed units which are especially suitable for crafts people. With grants from Arts Council England - Yorkshire and Foyle Foundation we will develop our starter studio and residency programme for ceramicists.
They have places for up to two emerging ceramicists. Deadline for applications is Friday 30th July. Further details and application forms can be downloaded from http://artspace.org.uk/programmes/starter-studios
This seems a fantastic initiative and we have put details on our Courses section and on the Potters section under submission deadlines. I hope that many 'emerging' ceramicists will apply for these two opportunities....
The workshops are still under construction for an October start date and as you can see from the images below are well under way! The year will be a great opportunity for two lucky ceramicists!
