WHAT:

A unique collaboration between ceramists and an active Arts and Crafts working history museum, the apprenticeship program of the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works is offered twice yearly with each session limited to three participants. Apprentices work 24 hrs per week in exchange for an hourly wage. Participants learn various forming and reproduction techniques including tile/mosaic making, moldwork, glaze application, sagger firing for controlled smoking of clay, and concrete installation.

Apprentices have an opportunity to produce works using the standard materials and tools of the pottery. They are exposed to a turn of the century knowledge based on the Arts and Crafts philosophy and aesthetics adhered to by the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. It is hoped that these factors influence the artwork produced by the apprentices. Apprentices are provided with limited studio space in the Pottery, which is accessible to them between the hours of 5 a.m. and midnight, seven days a week. In addition, they receive free materials, use of tools, technical advice, and biweekly pay based on the work produced under the Pottery’s direction.
