Volunteering, Work Placement Opportunities

The Ceramic House offers work placements to students and ceramic enthusiasts, or individuals who wish to learn more about clay processes. We also offer Erasmus placements to students, staff, trainees, teachers, volunteers from the EU and around the world. See the Erasmus website for more information or contact Kay

Kay has been working with studio assistants since 2008, when she moved into her current studio at Phoenix Brighton. Many people have been involved in the making of The Ceramic House installations, which is ongoing, and on many other projects and commissions. Kay is conscientious in teaching all the processes involved in producing and occasionally installing work. Techniques include: tile making, slab rolling, press-moulding, slip-casting, mixing glazes, decorating with oxides and underglazes, glazing, firing, using kilns, recycling clay, occasionally working with mosaic and other materials. She also offers opportunities to assist in preparing for exhibitions, e.g. at The Ceramic House. This involves handling work, hanging the show, interpretation, interfacing with the public and helping run events such as openings and performance nights. Assistants can also help in events such as fairs. The feedback Kay receives is always very positive. Everyone enjoys working in a fun, intensive, collaborative atmosphere which is inviting and friendly. Refreshments are provided.
