Professional practice – Kilns to Galleries  With Stuart Carey

8 week course: next course, Thursdays 10am – 1pm, 23rd September – 11th November 

This course will take you through many aspects of professional practice within ceramics. Stuart will tackle a range of issues facing ceramicists including; studio management, quality & refinement of work, understanding the market, pricing & paperwork, marketing, public image and speaking. This is a theory lead course which doesn’t involve wet materials but does involve plenty of group discussions, practicals and site visits.
Students will leave with a broader understanding of the market and will create their own documents to define their practice for themselves and retailers. There will be a maximum of 10 spaces available.
Stuart Carey is the co-founder of The Kiln Rooms and has his own successful practice; Stuart’s website
