City and Guilds artist glass fellow opportunity
The City & Guilds of London Art School is offering an Artist Glass Fellow position starting in October 2022.
The post offers a unique opportunity for an artist to develop their own practice in the Glass Workshop, working alongside artist Anne Petters, who runs the facility with technical input from artist Philippa Beveridge.
The not-for-profit art school says the successful applicant will have an undergraduate and postgraduate qualification in Fine Art/Sculpture or equivalent, and will demonstrate a commitment to contemporary art practice that involves glass or glass-based practices.
The Glass Workshop is described as ‘a small but dynamic learning facility’, where students from across the art school’s courses are introduced to, and taught, processes involved in working with glass, particularly slumping, casting and construction.
The new fellow must be available in the Glass Workshop on average 1 day per week during undergraduate term time, supporting and supervising students under the direction of the Workshop technical team.
In return the successful applicant will receive access to the Glass Workshop to pursue their own practice at times agreed with the workshop team, training and experience in advanced technical aspects of glass processes and an exhibition space and promotion as part of the MA and Fellows Show at the Art School in September 2023.
The application deadline is 8 July 2022.
