Experience

Art Practice

2017: Midlands Art Centre (MAC) 

Shadowing ceramicist Sue Dyer in the ceramics studio while she taught short courses on studio ceramics, mould making and porcelain. This was an opportunity to learn and experience day to day life in a working ceramics studio.

Advising and supporting first year students studying BA (Hons) Art and Design on their academic writing. This was carried out through writing workshops and offering one to one support and guidance.

Volunteering responsibilities involved greeting people entering the gallery and providing them with information about what was currently on display as well as upcoming lectures and events.

2016: City of Colours Festival 

I was part of a team selling the artwork of the various artists who attended the festival. This role involved categorising the artworks, pricing them appropriately and organising the stall. I also provided the public with information about the artists there on the day and the event itself.

Technician Roles

2017: Midlands Art Centre (MAC) 

I worked alongside and shadowed the technicians learning about what happens behind the scenes in the ceramics studio. For example, I learnt about how to work and use a gas fired kiln and how to pug clay to be recycled. I also helped the technicians organise the other studios at the MAC ready for teaching sessions.

Responsibilities included ordering stock for the school, organising the technology block store rooms and distributing materials to students. I was also involved in installing a sixth form exhibition and accompanying children on an art related trip.
