Apprentice Opportunity with Leach Pottery and Seasalt

WPA

Now in its 4th year, Cornish clothing brand, Seasalt, is offering another opportunity to train and study as a potter at the Leach Pottery in St Ives, Cornwall as part of their Bursary.

The bursary forms part of their new campaign, Modern Creatives, which supports creativity in the community and helps keep Cornwall’s rich heritage and creativity alive.

Libby Buckley, Leach Pottery Director, said, “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to train a highly skilled potter in the Leach tradition which links back to Bill Marshall – the original apprentice in 1938.”

With long-held strong links to the creative community, particularly in St Ives, we are delighted to continue backing this innovative scheme.

They are looking for someone who is practical, enthusiastic and has natural creative flair. No previous ceramics experience is necessary. The new apprenticeship will begin in October 2017.

The Seasalt Bursary is providing the funding towards the establishment of this position on an annual basis.
To apply for the Seasalt Bursary, visit https://www.leachpottery.com/apprenticeship2017 before the closing date of Friday 11th August 2017.
