Work exchange programme

The development of professional practice is at the heart of what we do. Since opening in 2015 we’ve hosted dozens of professional development talks/demos, been involved in projects with local schools, liaised closely with the RCA, CSM and UAL colleges and given over 100 people free membership to our studios.

Our work exchange programme consists of providing 18-20 early career ceramicists free membership to our studio in Peckham Levels. We spend time training people in how to manage a studio, mix glazes, pack/service/manage kilns and how to deal with frequently asked questions as well as how to tackle a range of issues which can arise in a ceramics studio. We provide 1-to-1 support, pass on opportunities which come our way and offer occasional paid work. People on the exchange can also watch demonstrations by our teachers free of charge, and benefit from all the perks / discounts of being a Peckham Levels member too. As well as having free 24 hour access to the studio with generous storage space, firings are free (within reason), it’s free to use our glazes and we provide the opportunity to sell work in our sales and shows. In exchange we ask for 7 hours a week hands on studio support alongside one of our technicians. This is the best way to learn how to manage work, kilns and understand best practice in a mutually supportive environment.

We don’t currently have any spaces available on this programme but there is regular turnover. If you’re interested please send a CV to
