The Cockpit Arts has announced the launch of their inaugural Ceramic Residency, which will support a talented ceramicist who has a strong desire to explore, experiment and take risks with their practice.
Cockpit Arts will provide a support structure for the selected maker to develop their work and ideas and, at the same time, work towards a sustainable model of practice.
The one year Residency is worth £5,000 and covers the cost of Cockpit Arts’ services, supported by the Circle of Patrons, including:
- A dedicated studio space in the Cockpit Arts creative community in south London (SE8)
- Provision of a kiln or a financial contribution towards one
- Business incubation and acceleration support; one-to-one coaching and a series of business support
- Public selling and promotional opportunities via twice-yearly Open Studios and other events
- Access to office facilities
Cockpit Arts are looking for makers who demonstrate originality, innovation, creativity, craft skill and quality in the work and concepts presented.
The Residency is open to all UK based ceramic practitioners, not currently based at Cockpit Arts.
Entries will be judged by a selection panel, comprising gallerist Sarah Myerscough; art critic Emma
Crichton-Miller, ceramicist Felicity Aylieff and Cockpit Arts Chief Executive Vanessa Swann.
Cockpit Arts are a Social Enterprise we support talented makers by providing sponsored places at their incubators.
Deadline: Wednesday 4 October, at 10am
